Orouni – “The Lives of Elevators”

Gentle acoustics and a playful keys accompaniment help complement Orouni’s engaging vocals on this excellent live session shot of “The Lives of Elevators”, a new effort off the group’s upcoming album. Also evidenced on the previously featured “The Peanut Specialist“, Orouni’s vocals have a soaring and personal quality to them reminiscent, at least to me, of Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, as well as Neil Hannon, similarly capable of constructing hook-y pop songs that don’t need shouting or much in terms of volume alternation to stand out. “The Lives of Elevators” is followed by the superb, brass-laden “The Devil and the Monk Seal”, off their 2014 LP Grand Tour.
