Onyria - Still Here

The Onyria alternative rock project, which was created in Italy in 2012 by producer/guitarist Simon J. Gillman and singer Helena, first gained internet fame by publishing rock adaptations of well-known songs. The band gradually shifted from early gothic rock-influenced successful releases to alternative music, embracing rawer thematics and a more basic sound. Their current sound is based on true alternative rock/post-grunge, enhanced with dynamics and variety, while also displaying a level of sensitivity and social critique in their lyrics.

This is their new single, called Still here, starting with a guitar riff (great sound!) and melodic vocals exploding in a very catchy chorus. What I like about the song is the general sound, the 90s mood, the vocal performance, the guitar solo and the different moods/vibes between the different sections of the song, all amazingly produced and performed by the band. Still here is a great song and this is a band you should keep an eye on.
