Social Creatures – “Fly the Loop”


Brooklyn-based act Social Creatures compel with an infectious synth/guitar fusing across new track “Fly the Loop,” representing the third single from their upcoming sophomore LP. Crisp guitars and spacey synth adornments craft a dreamy intrigue to start, traversing seamlessly into funky bass-heavy verses with charismatic vocals.

“If I could get out in front of it,” the vocals let out, building into a playful synth-touched bridge that culminates in the introduction’s dazzling synth/guitar interplay; the result is simultaneously lush and infectious. The vocals take a reprieve approaching the three-minute mark, letting jangly guitars and reflective synths stretch their legs for a blissfully atmospheric immersion into the satiating conclusion.

Social Creatures describe the track as lyrically exploring “themes of breaking the cycle, not repeating the mistakes of those who came before us, our addictions, the “loop” that we can have a hard time escaping in life.”

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