Discovery: Orouni

Orouni is a French singer-songwriter who produces fun little ditties, with Nora (Naked) being a quirky and interesting track.

By Jane Howkins

It’s a fairly simple song and the main melody is played purely through guitar fingerpicking, but this method is effective, and adds a hidden beauty to the track. We’re reminded a little of Regina Spektor and her music, although Orouni is distinctive enough to stand on her own. Whilst the track sounds very bouncy, there is a dark meaning to the lyrics, and the change halfway through is rather interesting.

The video for the track is also rather interesting and was shot on Super 8 film – if that intrigues you then you can watch it below:
