Make Believe Love – “Trapped in a Maze”


Anthemic pop and rock intertwining take hold on “Trapped in a Maze,” a blast of a track from Make Believe Love. The Los Angeles-based project of multi-instrumentalist Lucas Berman collaborates here with producer/multi-instrumentalist Louie Diller (HOLYCHILD) and guitarist Sam Stewart (Lo Moon, Olivia Rodrigo). The result proves thoroughly compelling — especially in the multi-layered vocals and whirring guitar distortion apparent in the title-referencing hook. The more sporadic, pulsating verses build with palpable momentum to this exhilarating chorus, easily inducing replays.

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