Smoking Cadillacs – “Meant to Be”


The sound of ocean waves leads into “Meant to Be,” an alluring pop single from Smoking Cadillacs. A radiant production stands out here. “We were never meant to be,” a debonair vocal drive lets out. “You can leave it all behind.” There’s a let-loose, ethereal quality that emanates throughout via the steady vocal lead and acoustic backing shimmer. A particularly striking element throughout arises in the wordless vocal effect, strutting a soaring emotiveness. Electric guitar infusions excite in the second half, leading the memorable “Meant to Be” to a satiating send-off.

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