DOWNBEAT POP: OBSQURE AND SUZ - BRAVE NEW WORLD

“Obsqure & Suz succeed to create a meandering but drifty piece about transition with their current song “Brave New World”. The powerful melancholic music settles into a sad sense of knowing with the voice appearing. “Brave New World“ is an unexpected forceful goodbye to past selves and lighthearted days.
This is the first single release from the upcoming album “Crossroads” on SPRINGSTOFF.

AH: A chill, layered track with good lyrics sung by a vocalist who captures your attention right away.
