Travis Black – “Honey”


Playfully melodic guitar swipes and clap-laden percussion open “Honey,” a new single from Travis Black, based around the Portland, Oregon area. Debonair vocals and crunchy guitar distortion complement a bustling bass drive to start, escalating contagiously into the synth-laden “dreams may come, and dreams may go,” hook; the glimmering, spacey character captivates here, and diversifies enjoyably from the more rock-forward initial arsenal. Jay Freedman’s saxophone bolsters the commanding production even further, cementing the success that is “Honey.”

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