Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Omen - Oliver Riot
Identical twins Alexander and Benjamin Moore are Oliver Riot, and they recently released their second EP Neurosis, which is a fascinating 4-track indie alternative album which features today's Daily Song Drop track "Omen".
Check it out below (and heads up, the artwork for the album is a little NSFW):
"Omen" is such a fascinating song which largely stands out (for me) thanks to the way it uses the brothers' vocals, in how the swell and fade, and how that is coupled with a great use of violin, both pizzicato and arco. The track is like a beautiful foggy night in your favourite city park; it's cool (but never too cold), peaceful, and yet has a certain eeriness that is not always there.
If you enjoy "Omen", be sure to give Neurosis a listen (though the rest of the tracks have a more, traditional, chill, soulful alternative feel to them compared to "Omen") or if you want to hear a bit more of where they came from as their style develops, check out their debut EP Hallucinate.
Here's the July 2017 DSD Playlist! We're missing a few tracks this month, which is sad for the Apple Music folks, but you've still got a really solid list this month (if I do say so myself, which I do...*cough*)
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the July '17 Spotify List (which features 1 more track than the Apple Music list).
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig
