New York-based English musician, Coyle Girelli's latest effort 'Between Us' is a vibrantly intense ride of rock coated in modern indie tones.The fourth, and final, single from Girelli's new album 'Museum Day' (that's due 27 October), 'Between Us' was produced by Lorenzo Wolff, whose previous work spans Taylor Swift and Kanye West.
It begins with a driving, pulsating rhythm section that shimmers alongside a glimmering guitar riff that stirs the emotive feels before Coyle's husky, velvety vocals lure you with a hopeful optimism gliding over the top.
The vocal breakdown two-thirds through heightens the sentimental mood, Coyle's voice harnessing a rustically raw power before the energised melody returns for one final sojourn of unrestrained rock & roll buoyancy.
"'Between Us' is a love story in New York City," begins Coyle. "A love lost and found again. Distance and return. A love that persists. Yet fighting against it. The fear and curiosity. What awaits? Heartbreak or true love?"
Ahead of the song's release tomorrow, scenestr is delighted to premiere 'Between Us' today. Enjoy.
An artist who has written songs for the likes of BTS, Macklemore, Robin Schulz, Westlife and many others, while formerly fronting rock bands Your Vegas and The Chevin, Girelli has released two solo albums, the most recent being 2022's 'Funland'.
"It's a more modern sound than [debut album] 'Love Kills' for sure," shares Girelli, discussing 'Museum Day'. "In some way it feels like the next step on from 'Funland'.
"It's more indie and in a lot of ways more contemporary feeling. Upbeat and in the shadows. Half New York City, half Manchester, England. Stories of moments, stories about people. Stories about lovers."
The end product that is 'Museum Day' came about after Coyle tuned into his intuition. "I wrote and recorded this album in a very short time, a matter of weeks really at the start of the year.
"I'd written what I thought was an album. Then I wrote 'Museum Day'. I scrapped the album I had planned, and in the weeks following wrote and recorded a whole new one, which is what I'm releasing.
"I purposely didn't overthink or analyse it. I let it write itself. Tell its stories. My job was to not overcomplicate it or get in the way."
'Museum Day' will be released 27 October.
