Couch Cult – “MOOD RING”


An emotive rocker from Couch Cult, “MOOD RING” unfolds with a grungy inspiration. Introspective vocal dreaminess launches into a wave of distortion. The prancing electric guitars, re-emerging at the two-minute turn, adds a dose of ardency as the vocals align in intensity, proving especially immersive into a bass-y post-punk nostalgia past the second minute. “MOOD RING” is a definitive success from Couch Cult. “This song describes the pain of loving someone who struggles with addiction,” the Georgia-based trio explains.

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