Bruce Mack – “Silent Witness”


“Silent Witness” touts a rousing rock sound with a confident vigor, strutting a bluesy and psych-friendly intertwining. The track comes via Bruce Mack, a New York-based artist who describes the release as “about living in the moment, enjoying the good-times the universe has brought to you, but paying close attention to all a moment has to offer…” He continues: “It is about keeping one’s Intuitive survival skills in tune.”

The introduction emphasizes a compelling tonal range, traversing from effervescent lushness into a bluesy rock charisma, where the vocals enter with sweltering immersion. “One summer the universe kissed me, like glory in heaven’s backyard,” they let out, compelling alongside tender guitar tones with an ’80s nostalgia. “Things change,” they caution, excelling into falsetto range as the two-minute turn approaches. The initial bright synths re-emerge within the conclusion, adding a satiating warmness to close this success.

The track also includes Michael R. Cox as a co-author, bassist, and producer, in addition to Ben Tyree on guitar and Chris Eddleton on drums.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
