Paris’ alt-rockers Storm Orchestra reveal their brand new single 'Bright Soul'

Winding their way through and illuminating the belly of the underground Paris music scene over the last few years have been three natives to the city, Storm Orchestra. Today, they have revealed their euphoric new single, "Bright Soul", and the news that they have signed to Mascot Records.

Their metallic alt-rock sets them apart from their contemporaries—a shimmering grandiose vision blended with marauding contemporary rock. The aggressive glammy guitar snaps and bites as it spirals around a thunderous, hard-rocking rhythm section that pulsates with an aura of glamour and charisma but also an overriding heaviness.

It's music built for stadiums but made to connect with people. It blends the infectiousness of Nothing But Thieves, the captivating driving force of Royal Blood, and the melodic ambition of Muse.

The new song "Bright Soul" was mixed by Grammy-winning Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters) and produced by Bertrand Poncet from Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! The song evokes human beings' perpetual inner struggle. "Each of us has a dark side, crystallizing our fears, wounds, and traumas that can extinguish our inner flame at any moment," they explain.

Singer Maxime Goudard's talismanic wail confides, "I cannot hide it anymore, It's pulsing in my veins, Calm my inner war, Without further delay, Escape from this vicious doubt, I battle for a way out... Where's my bright soul? It's always away, It's leaving a terrifying hole," over the rousing noise that lets the words run free.

The leitmotif is this inner question: "Where's my bright soul?" Goudard opens up about his fear of letting his dark side take over the person he wants to be. His fierce determination to fight for the best in himself is symbolized by the powerful riff that opens and closes the track.
