Higher Selves Playdate – “Tilt-A-Whirl”


An aptly titled single that touts a whirring sense of energy, “Tilt-A-Whirl” excels with its flickering guitar vibrancy and excitable vocal drive. The track comes via Virginia-based duo Higher Selves Playdate, who capture an ethos of embracing the rollercoaster that is the human experience — its “terror, chaos, beauty, and bliss of the adventure.” Jessica Kallista and Steve Fitzpatrick proudly proclaim a willingness to ride the ride, enamoring within a blend of garage-rock and power-pop vibrancy.

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