Blair Borax – “Hide Your Ammo”


An awakening folk stirring takes hold on “Hide Your Ammo,” a recent track from Portland-based artist Blair Borax. An initial acoustic-set sparseness complements lyrics reflective of deep introspection, hinting at a second-guessing. The wordless vocal sequences channels ample momentum, as does the cohesively impactful drive into the “died with his secrets,” — immersing with its piano-laden touch into another memorable sequence of bristling acoustics and wordless vocal enthusiasm. “Hide Your Ammo” is a moving success, exploring themes of sacrifice in the face of good and evil.

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