resting – “Boys”


Jangling guitars and a yearning vocal entrancement take hold on “Boys,” a new single from resting, a band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. “Let’s stay awhile, and just dissolve for today,” a subdued presence builds into a burst of jangly guitars, with “miss you,” vocal sentiments captivating. A guitar-fronted charisma induces an atmospheric immersion in the final 30 seconds, reminding fondly of Wild Nothing. “Boys” is a grippingly melodic success from resting.

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

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
