Ronan Goron – “Telegraph Hill”


Brighton, UK-based artist Ronan Goron enamors with a lovably throwback psych-pop enamoring on new single “Telegraph Hill.” A breezily lush vocal demeanor lends a thoroughly hypnotic appeal, while clanging guitar pulses play steadily amidst flashes of playful synths. The serene vocal tone and textured guitar-based psychedelic concocts a dazed, tripped-out timelessness reminiscent of Panda Bear. Goron showcases here an innate ability to infuse modern electronic flourishes with a blast-from-the-past array of warm guitars and subdued vocal engrossment.

Featuring production from Brighton-based producer Bobby Smiles, “Telegraph Hill” develops with a climactic glow. Lyrical references to trees and ivy leaves further a forest-set intrigue, pondering the place and time into hazily hypnotic vocal layers past the one-minute turn. “Tell me your truth,” the vocals plead as trickling synth arps emerge, incorporating with seamless cohesion. “Telegraph Hill” is a delight of a single from Ronan Goron, lyrically appreciating life’s mysteries within a comfortably melodic psych-pop spell.

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.
