Aidan Rhys – “High”


An introspective, late-night rock sound takes hold on “High,” a new single from Aidan Rhys that explores the emotions arising from repeated “failed situation-ships.”

“I’m not what you want me to be,” Rhys sings during the escalating chorus, falling back seamlessly into a creaky guitar-laden sincerity — “I’m not something you can commit to.” “Please don’t get close to me,” they continue during a pulsing array of guitar distortion; the emotive vocals and warming guitar layers converge with lasting impact, making for a compellingly emotional rock and pop intertwining throughout “High.”

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