Mike Blair & the Stonewalls – “Pay”


A comforting Americana success with twangy guitars and warming organs, “Pay” is a new track from North Carolina-based five-piece Mike Blair & the Stonewalls. “If I’m being honest, I can’t take my eyes off you,” smitten vocals admit alongside the melodic arsenal. The laid-back vocals into a resonating sequence, capping off with the “last thing we oughta do tonight is pay,” line into tender guitar entrancement. Sentiments of loneliness and yearning compel in the ensuing verses, driving into a memorable chorus and satisfying send-off.

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