Tiger Beach – “Nokonoshima”


“Nokonoshima” enamors with a melodic sense of escapism, showcasing an evolving rock and glistening pop introspection from Tiger Beach. Glistening guitars weave in sporadically amidst a steady acoustical backing, as vocals establish a waterside sense of contemplation — “looking out at the ships as they all float across the bay,” — amidst a sense of clinging onto paradise, even as the sun begins to set. The Raleigh, NC-based band conclude the track with an exuberant array of vocal layers and chirpy guitars, with shades of The Cure within the “think you’ll be mine,” aspirations. “Nokonoshima” is a winner.

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