Indie-pop vibes blend organic and electronic production traits, as New Scream leads with country-kissed songwriting and beautifully expressive, soft yet distinctive vocals.
San Francisco Sun is the new anthem, rightfully loaded with images and intimate reflections, with a soft-rock sentiment to the progression and a nostalgic rise and fall to the waves of verses.
That subtle country-pop twang elevates these quieter moments, before we resolve with an electric guitar-line following the switch in melody for the hook. Suddenly there’s an indie-rock and anthemic feel to proceedings, introducing a song that naturally invites audience participation – in particular during the final third, where our vocalist reaches passionate new peaks to reinforce the emotion of the journey.
Really-well structured and undoubtedly a song that would come to life all the more so in a real-time setting. Definitely look out for New Scream across the Melbourne music venues this summer.
