Pythies – “Eclipse”


Paris-based band Pythies unveil a grungy rock allure on new single “Eclipse,” showcasing a hooky vigor from the women-fronted act, comprising Lise.L, guitarist Thérèse La Garce, and drummer Anna B. Void. “Eclipse” represents their third single, and precedes their new EP, out in September. Astrology-minded themes mesh with ’90s “riot grrl” inspirations, with “indie sleaze” fashion of the 2000s also being an influence, per the trio.

Written by Lise.L around the lunar eclipse on October 28th, was completely visible over Europe, “Eclipse” touts a climactic, invigorating appeal. “I wanna move the stone with my mind,” the vocals exude with a punk-friendly entrancement during the central hook, adding an emotive pep to the vocal delivery following the more contemplative “something is swelling,” verses. “Eclipse is coming for you,” the vocal layers warn with anticipatory fury, capping the track off with an ominous yet invigorating delectability. “Eclipse” is a sturdy rock success from Pythies.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
