Castles in Canopy – “Wipe These Tears With Your Own Sleeve”


Manchester-based act Castles in Canopy deliver a fervent pop sound on “Wipe These Tears With Your Own Sleeve.” Impassioned vocals and gentle piano pulses play alongside an evolving guitar presence, lending playful spurts as the piano assumes a bouncier charisma as the hooky chorus re-emerges. Here, the vocals conclude with advice to “wipe these tears with your own sleeve.” The reflective guitar line adds further to the ample replay value. Castles in Canopy show their gripping pop songwriting chops here, for certain.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.
