Shenanygans – “Count on Me”


Irish-Swiss-Polish quartet Shenanygans blend stirring vocal harmonies and a classic, starry-eyed rock/pop sound on new single “Count on Me.” A Beatles-esque charm shows in the production, which enamors in its yearning vocal presence and jangling guitar work. Shenanygans describe the effort as “about a past relationship which still lingers on and has a nostalgic feeling.” The track is a part of the upcoming album, On Monte Verita, out this spring.

Twangy guitars and three-part vocal harmonies co-exist with melodic entrancement throughout “Count on Me.” The vocals admit to “missing you,” while reflecting on past times. “If we ever meet again,” they continue, strutting a a finalized sense of dissolution, along with the past tense recollections. “I hope you know you still can count on me,” the vocals conclude with, lending a warming, bright demeanor with forward-thinking reassurances, as this delight from Shenanygans closes with satiating impact.

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.
