bigfish – “Lovesong #2”


A recent single from Los Angeles-based act bigfish, “Lovesong #2” builds with climactic rock allure. Thumping bass and sporadic guitar glistening complements introspective lyrics, ascending alongside rising guitars into a cathartic soaring.

Inventive comparisons to love’s lofty complexities — like that of a grizzly bear, eating “scraps of flesh,” — intrigue into the bursts of vocal charisma. The final minute unveils a thunderous array of guitar distortion and organ touches, in addition to a devastatingly effective vocal performance — “why do I smile when you say that you love me?” — that concludes the track with invigorating captivation.

Check out the band’s debut EP, Punchlines, below:

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