Conjuring a timeless sound with swaying piano and lush vocal entrancement, “Captain America” is a new track from Paris-based band Oracle Sisters. The opening lyrics craft visions of setting sunsets and rusty desert towns, aptly accompanied by the natural, resonating piano-driven production. The “cold wind,” line drives into a descending melodic progression that reminds fondly of Richard Swift. The twangy guitar additions past the three-minute mark play with a serenely consuming quality, as does the closing vocal refrain amidst perkier piano shimmers and elongated guitar expressions. “Captain America” would stand out in 1972 or 2022 alike; it’s an excellent track from Oracle Sisters.
“Captain America” and other memorable tracks from December can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2021’ Spotify playlist.
