Coyle Girelli – “Where’s My Girl?”


The moody and vocally gripping “Where’s My Girl?” is the first solo single from Coyle Girelli, also the frontman of The Chevin. Originally from Leeds and now based in Brooklyn, Girelli is a master of atmosphere here, with a quivering vocal presence combining with a melody that recalls Morricone’s suave, western-y works. An echoing, twangy guitar permeates throughout the hook, with Girelli’s vocals excelling particularly through the three-minute mark. Girelli has also worked recently with singer/songwriter legend Mac Davis, writer of hits such like “In The Ghetto” and “A Little Less Conversation” for Elvis Presley. Their songwriting sessions helped result in a forthcoming album that provides “a fresh take on the romantic spirit of lusty early rock, dark and soulful Americana, and sweeping cinematic music.”

“Where’s My Girl?” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2018’ Spotify playlist.
