Max Blansjaar – “Red Tiger”


A resonating new single from Max Blansjaar, “Red Tiger” compels with its folk-friendly unraveling, reminiscent at points of Sufjan Stevens. The track’s “all the days rolled into months,” sequence stirs, as does the arrival of electric guitar tones following the “like you to be free,” vocal yearning. “When the night comes,” the vocals enamor alongside twinkling aspects, admitting “it’s a jungle,” as trickling acoustics re-emerge; the track is consistently engaging in its series of reveals. “Red Tiger” compels in its range of more understated folk introspection and more ardent textural arrivals

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