The Spacewalkers FFEEATCOPO – “Truth Is a Knife”


Emphasizing the importance of valuing each and every moment, “Truth Is a Knife” is a bursting pop success from San Francisco-based act The Spacewalkers FFEEATCOPO. They describe the release as “a song about waking up in the hospital and realizing that there’s nothing bigger than the little things.”

A suave bass line unfolds into spritzy synths anthemic vocal punches. A subdued vocal lead then emerges, reflecting emotions arriving in waves as a title-bearing refrain precedes the “I’ve been sleepwalking most of my life,” admittance. “Now I think I finally get it,” the vocals proclaim at the mid-point. Bustling synth-bass and ’80s-friendly guitar tones assemble with fun vigor into the final refrain, putting a wrap on this melodic success.

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