US artist and songwriter John O’Brien has been honing in on their craft for over four decades. Their latest single Siboney is a testament to their songwriting and performing talent. Prepare to be seriously serenaded by their alchemic fretboard mastery and their velvety smooth seductive vocals.
After an intoxicatingly atmospheric start, the 80s-inspired track gently gains momentum. As it does, it breaks the monocultural mould of mainstream Pop. The Spanish guitar brings as an exotically captivating dynamic to the soundscape which consistently evolves throughout the 4-minute duration.
You can check out Siboney for yourselves from the date of release by heading over to John O’Brien’s SoundCloud. In the meantime, you can check out their equally as mesmerising earlier releases.
