Pacific Death – “* * ocean of sleeping stars * *”


An instrumental rock delight from Pacific Death, “* * ocean of sleeping stars * *” balances vibrant captivation and lush intrigue. The track precedes the Stockholm-based artist’s upcoming fourth album. A series of singles are leading up to the full-length, with “* * ocean of sleeping stars * *” strutting an atmospheric rock entrancement that has us fully anticipating the album.

Soaring guitars and reflective keys mesh with a distortion-laden undercurrent, making for an instrumental rock captivation that’s both meditative and full of vigor. The rhythms scale back at the two-minute turn, allowing the guitars and keys to assume an effervescent, sunshine-friendly allure — with a soaring that continues to linger enjoyably into the conclusion. Frolicking, lounge-y piano tones drift into the satiating conclusion, fading out with a serene glow. We’re excited to hear more in the near future from Pacific Death.

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.
