Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Can't Be Sure - Noble Oak
Vancouver's Noble Oak recently released his second album Collapsing Together and on it displays a beautiful variety of sounds, ranging from a more ethereal pop, to hazy, 80s rock, but I have chosen to go with "Can't Be Sure" for our Daily Song Drop today because...well I'll get to that (and the song) below:
"Can't Be Sure" feels like a track from a David Lynch work--it's hung together beautifully, combining an 80s electro-dream pop feel with a few different twists (specifically a more traditional drum, and the odd electric guitar kick in). This is a cinematic pop song that has a great deal of precision put into it to create a rather stunning whole--there's so much to like here for any fans of indie electro-pop, 1980s pop, or, just a really good, different indie sound.
Noble Oak has released a pair of albums, three EPs, and several singles (in a surprisingly short amount of time), so if you enjoy "Can't Be Sure", be sure to check out the rest of Collapsing Together, and then dive back in his catalog: there is a lot to enjoy.
The August 2017 DSD Playlist is here! This month we are only missing one (1) track, from AL-X the Great, as it is not available...anywhere other than where I put it in here, but it is tradition that we are missing something every month. Also, here is the link to the August '17 Spotify List because....we are on Spotify!
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
