Avenoir – “Orpheus and Eurydice”


The passionate, emotive “Orpheus and Eurydice” is a just-released track from Avenoir, a four-piece based in West Yorkshire. The more understated vocal delivery in the verses is complemented by fuzzy guitars, which build in intensity as the chorus approaches, where the vocals assume a more ferocious approach. A pleasantly melodic guitar solo takes hold at 02:38, capping off the hooky and passionate chorus with convincing appeal. Melding aspects of alternative with grunge, Avenoir produce a vein of emotional, melodic rock that should appeal to fans of both ’90s and contemporary rock alike.

“Orpheus and Eurydice” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2019’ Spotify playlist.
