Katherine Priddy is carving out a position as one of the new generation of folk voices – and ‘Eurydice‘ only goes to reinforce that statement. It’s taken from ‘The Eternal Rocks Beneath‘, Priddy’s new album which will be released on June 25th and elegantly blends Katherine Priddy’s finger-picked guitar and clear vocal with dreamscape psychedelic touches in a truly memorable way.
Speaking about her new single, Priddy says: “’Eurydice’ is one of two songs on the album based on a Greek myth. It is a darker, edgier track, with climactic electric guitar, bass and drums alongside heartfelt, soaring vocals. The sound was inspired by Radiohead’s ‘Nude’ and lyrically, it is loosely inspired by the story of Orpheus rescuing Eurydice from the underworld by leading her out whilst not being allowed to turn around to check that she’s there.”
