Tarantula Arms – “Synchronized Swimming”


Described as “a mini opera about diving into the water and never resurfacing,” “Synchronized Swimming” is a resonating new track from Tarantula Arms.

Theatrical vocal layers assemble with captivating effect alongside piano reflections and string-laden support. “Here’s a song for you,” they lead into a frolicking, fantasy-set intrigue as the orchestration becomes more prominent and the vocals assume a dazed, psychedelic engrossment. The classical and pop integrations excels throughout, with the concluding piano work and string accompaniments being especially moving. “Synchronized Swimming” is an inventive success from Tarantula Arms.

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