“Somebody,” the recent single from Soft Cat (a.k.a. Baltimore’s Neil Sanzgiri in collaboration with numerous others), sends me immediately back to the desk where I worked at as a teenager. It’s the first place I remember listening to music with my eyes closed, headphones on, tilted slightly back in my chair. Maybe it’s the quietly plucked pattern bustling underneath the track, and maybe it’s the careful string arrangement that drifts in and out, but there’s something in “Somebody” that makes me feel small, young, and ready to move along.
Feel the youthful energy of the Baltimore artist’s latest.
