Touched – “Cherry”


“Cherry” is a soulful, nostalgic success from Touched, a five-piece from Halifax, NS, and Montreal, Quebec. Representing the second single from their upcoming full-length, “Cherry” rides on bouncy piano and airy vocal layers to start.

Subtle string infusions add to the mix, with the one-minute turn dazzling upon a wordless backing vocal envelopment — touting an angelic, lush quality as brassy elements emerge. The dual-vocal momentum and symphonic pop elements converge with blissfully melodic tendencies, absorbing with a timeless-feeling entrancement.

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