The resonating “Recreation” is a new track from UV Tourist, off their upcoming album Out of Body. Twangy guitar shimmers and soaring vocals guide to a hooky series of keys/synths past the 30-second mark, signaling one of the track’s numerous clever melodic shifts. The clanging guitars around 01:40 is another notable section, emitting a crisply memorable quality. Lyrics like “I just wanna feel that warm connection,” convey a particular yearning that everyone can relate to at the moment…
“I wrote this song in 2012, thinking about the difference between surface-level pleasures and deeper ones,” the band writes. “But in these quarantine times, “Recreation” takes on a new meaning for me, as we self-isolate and wait for the day where we can connect physically again.”
“Recreation” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2020’ Spotify playlist.
