Charming Pop from Orouni

Perhaps the greatest thing about working on this site for the last ten years or so are all the incredible and kind artists who’ve reached out to say hello or share a song. This is exactly how I stumbled upon this special track from French outfit, Orouni. The band are pretty open about their affinity for Belle and Sebastian and the Divine Comedy, and you can hear that in the way they craft these broad sweeping arrangements behind simple vocal melodies; it sounds like a live film score written especially for you in your bedroom. The story behind this particular track was comes from a tale in the New Yorker about an employee stuck in an elevator for 41 hours. This is absolutely brilliant; you can find the tune on their latest LP, Partitions, available now from December Square.
