Omer Gronich – “Azure”


“Azure” shows the atmospheric, emotional sound of Omer Gronich, an artist who grew up in the suburbs of Tel Avi, and spent two formative years in London. Gronich has fronted indie-rock band Moofie (formerly Line 48), who performed at Israel’s largest music festival, InDnegev, in addition to winning Israel’s national battle of the bands (Goldsnare). Gronich’s solo material marks further exploration into his songwriting abilities, channeling a more atmospheric and experimental sound that resonates with success on “Azure.”

“Azure” is the first track off Gronich’s upcoming debut release The Art of Sinking. The track was created in Gronich’s bedroom with a gutiar, microphone, and a computer — the result being an aesthetic success. Reversed guitar loops and a falsetto-reaching vocal pull accompany soul-searching lyrics, commenting on “existential emotions along with the truthful nature of love and the pain of love loss.” “Azure” is a consuming effort that has me anticipating The Art of Sinking.

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