Super World Indie Tune Of The Day: Decomposition makes me crumble.

Super World Indie Tune Of The Day 17.04.2020: Orouni – “Decomposition”. If you thought Synaesthesia was a land in The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe you are dead wrong brother. It’s actually a morbid fear of synthesisers. Which is ironic given Orouni’s liberal use of these dreaded keyboards down the…[It’s not a fear of…

Orouni’s Nora isn’t Batty.

Orouni – Nora (Naked) “Nora (Naked)” is another beautiful vignette written by our man Rémi Antoni. It captures the awakening and departure of Nora, the protagonist of Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House”, no mean feat in 3-minute pop tune and another illustration of the craft of Orouni. It also strikes a modern chord given the #MeToo…

February Fried

Spring Snow [excerpt] by William Matthews And here comes snow, a language in which no word is ever repeated, love is impossible, and remorse. . . .

Mister Orouni is a master of the tune-y

Orouni – Somewhere In Dreamland Orouni holds a special place in our hearts here at SWIT. We went (pea)nuts for his last LP – the wonderful musical travelogue, “Grand Tour”. Rémi Antoni writes clever, observation, highly original pop tunes (with the emphasis on “tune”), his music is painted in bright colours. I was excited to…

The Week 05022017: The balloon has gone up

The skies were blue, the wind was barely a rumour and the grass was crisp and bright with February’s dewy frost. Gerry arrived, leather gloves in hand, goggles akimbo and Push Me Pull Me running skittishly by his side. Before I could say “talk to the animals” he’d lept into the basket, pulled his wire…

So far so good so Orouni!

This is another new song from our erudite friend Orouni. Please do listen to and watch this beguiling Sofar Session, where he plays “Nora”. The beautiful singing is by Emma Broughton (backing vocalist for Bon Iver when he played in Paris last September, how lucky he was!). Raphael Thyss is the trumpet man, class. Orouni…
