Indie folk band, Eventually Epic, has tugged at heartstrings with their recent single “Grey,” which is the fourth track from their upcoming self-titled debut album. Comprised of Debarun (Roon) Bhattacharjya on guitars and vocals, and Sachin Premasuthan on vocals and keytar, the group’s melancholic instrumentation, soulful melodies, and emotive lyrics shine through in this beautifully crafted track.
Inspired by a poem by Roon’s sister and the suspended chord arpeggios in Suzanne Vega’s “Luka,” “Grey” is a song that captures the pain and longing that comes with heartbreak. The use of surreal instrumental sounds and haunting vocal harmonies effectively convey the sense of pensiveness and yearning that Eventually Epic wanted to evoke.
The music video, directed by Barry Steele, adds another layer of emotion to the song with interpretive dancers portraying a couple struggling to move on from their past relationship. Shot on the empty streets of New York City during the pandemic, the use of black and white visuals interspersed with color gives the video a sense of nostalgia.
Following “Breaking Free,” “Shoes,” and “Khafa,””Grey” showcases the raw emotions Eventually Epic is capable of conveying through their music. The track’s understated beauty is sure to leave listeners reaching for the repeat button as they immerse themselves in the stunning soundscape that they have created. With their debut album set to come out soon and multiple performances scheduled for later this year, fans can look forward to more captivating music from Eventually Epic.
