To date, French indie-pop outfit Orouni have proven their propensity for brilliance when it comes to classic, melodic guitar pop music.
Orouni’s output has yielded three delightfully charming albums, with a fourth just having landed; Partitions continues this trend. Orouni’s carefully crafted arrangements are marked by an easy-going flow and a ear for melody and elegance – and none more so than new single ‘The Lives Of Elevators’. It elegantly flits between melancholic and beautiful, fragile but authoritative, with lush arrangements and irresistible parps of brass. Charming and sometimes bittersweet, this is the class of perfect pop-craft associated with the likes of The Kinks, Sweet Baboo and Tap Tap et al. This is ever so endearing, delightful catchy and dripping with melody, but be warned; it will get stuck in your head for days and days.
Listen to ‘The Lives Of Elevators’ below and if that is to your liking, may I suggest that you check out new album Partitions here.
