Slender Dan – “Every Morning The World Is Created”


A new single from Nashville-based duo Slender Dan, “Every Morning The World Is Created” enamors with its dreamy pop glistening and loving thematic tone. The track is an apt release for Mother’s Day weekend, with explorations into the “psychedelic nature of life, motherhood, and rejuvenation,” per the duo. “We wrote it in honor of our best friend who gave birth to her first child during the pandemic.”

Twangy guitars and whirring bass-y pulses guide into a hypnotic vocal lushness, touting a production reminiscent of Tame Impala’s recent material, in its serenely escalating charm. The title-touting hook dazzles in its heightening vocal pitch and fluttering synth trickling. The “find what you seek,” backing reflections add to the immersion. “Every Morning The World Is Created” is a captivating success from Slender Dan, which seems to celebrate the beauty of motherhood and unconditional love.

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