The pleasantly melodic “On Your Side” is the debut single from Silklake, the project of Russian singer/songwriter Egor. Born in a tiny far-eastern town named Komsomolsk-on-Amur and now living in Moscow, Egor is a songwriter with a sturdy emphasis on memorable acoustic-friendly melodies. He references Pete Yorn and Nick Drake as inspirations for this track particularly. Mellow vocals adorn about a playful bass, acoustic flutters, and flashes of twinkling keys to commence. The 1-minute mark sees an electric guitar addition alongside escalating vocal passion, setting up for a memorable chorus. Appear out for the track’s music video later this year.
“As for the story behind lyrics of this song, I wrote it immediately after I listened to “An American Prayer” by The Doors,” Egor says. “That’s why there’s a lot of stuff like “secret garden” and so on. Rather in Morrison’s style. But basically it is a song about how some individuals favor keep kids inside and adhere to their dreams regardless of of ages.”)
“On Your Side” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.
