90 Minute Cassette – “It’s Something Else”


Kansas City-based band 90 Minute Cassette mesh chirpy guitar jangles and playfully effervescent synths on new single “It’s Something Else,” exuding an ’80s nostalgia with its twinkling rock and pop intertwining.

Led by Chuck Whittington (guitar/vocals) and Hillary Watts (synths/vocals), 90 Minute Cassette enamor with a melodic immediacy throughout — enthusing from the get-go with crisp guitar gliding and illuminated synth touches, and shifting to an emotive sincerity upon the stately vocals’ skyline-set reflections. The title-touting hook dazzles in its hooky colorfulness and heart-on-sleeve affections. We’re excited to hear what’s next.

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