Bryan Dubay – “Black Ocean”


“Black Ocean” is a compelling new single from Bryan Dubay, a New York-based singer/songwriter whose penchant for both emotion and atmosphere is abundant throughout this success. Twinkling keys meander alongside gentle acoustic strums, with gentle vocal layers floating with an ethereal charm.

Various instrumentation add to a serenely impactful soundscape, with strings and synth pads injecting with particular magic into the riveting atmosphere. Glistening guitar work and the contemplative vocal tones are befitting of thematic escapism, striving to drift from a world full of tumult; it’s easy to surrender fully to the production’s blissful drive.

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