Kwolek – “Some Evenings”


A grungy rock escalation grips on “Some Evenings,” a new track from Boulder-based artist Kwolek. The New Jersey native has impressed in the past with tracks like “Cemetery Days” and “Ronnie Stole This Riff,” and continues these strong string of releases with “Some Evenings.” Kwolek describes the track as “about a person who is bored in their day job ‘designing graphs and charts in some neutral/awful office park’ and has begun spending nights exploring new ways to feel a ‘touch more than indifference.'”

“I don’t participate, but I like to observe,” the opening vocal sentiments emit, putting us in the shoes of a protagonist with a sense of unease and dissatisfaction. The “spend my days,” recollections and yearning to “love somebody,” launch with ample vigor into the distortion-heavy ardency. “To tear me apart,” the vocals let out there, culminating in a refrain that admits “some people watch, some like to be watched,” — and artfully capturing the dynamics of the human experience, differing by personal preferences in regard to introversion/extroversion, self-doubts, and feeling a sense of complacency. Kwolek continues with a very fruitful year of quality songwriting thus far.

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.
