Tye David – “Troubled Heart”


The debut single from Kansas City-based artist Tye David, “Troubled Heart” struts a soulful pop sound with a laid-back R&B appeal. Glistening guitar lines and harmonious vocal entice to “take me troubled heart,” as key-laden ruminations reflect on someone walking into one’s life and changing it all. “You are the best thing that’s happened to me,” the vocals lead into the consuming chorus — capturing the beauty of a relationship, and how it can save one from the dark.

The track enamors in its grateful, smitten lyrical adorations alongside a tastefully melodic range of tender guitars, playful synths, and twinkling additives. With its easily accessible production and smoothly impactful sound, “Troubled Heart” certainly has us anticipating whatever’s next from Tye David.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
