Available now as a free download, ‘Orpheus’ is a fantastic debut track from London songwriter Baron Goodlove, ably assisted by band The Dreadful Noise. In reality, this track is anything but, offering an insidiously infectious melody that slowly creeps further under your skin with each listen.
It’s telling that, even at this early stage, Baron Goodlove is already getting enough buzz around him to win a support slot with George Ezra – just goes to show that marrying some darkly subtle blues-indie to a man who revels in Victorian fashion can have quite an effect.
Almost theatrical in his performance and approach, Goodlove’s twinging guitar has unsurprisingly led to comparisons with none other than Jeff Buckley. Big shoes to fill, but never say never.
