Toronto quartet The Beaches have released their new single, “Orpheus“, a cleverly-spun ode to the Greek mythological figure. The new track finds the band reimagining their lover as the ill-fated musician of the same name, all with dreamy synth and an energetic beat as the backdrop. Listen to it now below.
Lead vocalist Jordan Miller says of the track, “I’ve always been interested in Greek myths. One of my favourites is the Orpheus legend, a story about an artist who is so in love with his deceased wife that he tries to bring her back to life, only to lose her again. There’s a lot about the story that resonates with me, especially when I think about past loves. It’s tempting to look back and put people on pedestals, but when you always look back you can never look forward and see what beautiful things might be coming for you.”
The Beaches are currently on a North American tour where they recently celebrated two sold out hometown shows at Toronto’s HISTORY. They’ve sold out additional shows across the country including Corona Theatre (Montreal, QC) and London Music Hall (London, ON).
