Eventually Epic Strikes An Emotional Chord With Heartfelt Single “Grey”

Indie folk band, Eventually Epic, consisting of Debarun (Roon) Bhattacharjya (guitars and vocals) and Sachin Premasuthan (vocals and keytar), has recently released their latest single “Grey.” Known for their melancholic instrumentation, soulful melodies, and evocative lyrics, the musicians deliver a song that is a beautiful ode to heartbreak.

“Grey” was inspired by a poem written by Roon’s sister, Manjima Bhattacharjya, and the suspended chord arpeggios in Suzanne Vega’s “Luka.” The final version of the track has resulted in an all-encompassing melody that elegantly projects the longing and pain one experiences post a breakup.

“We have tried to convey a sense of pensiveness and yearning using simple yet universal lyrics, haunting vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar arpeggios, and other sparingly used surreal instrumental sounds,” explains Eventually Epic.

But it’s not just the music that captures the heartbreak of “Grey.” The music video, directed by Barry Steele and choreographed by Jillian Linkowski and Razvan Stoian from Battery Dance, adds another layer of emotion to the song. The interpretive dancers, with their flawless movements, reflect the raw pain of a couple who aren’t over their past relationship. 

“We went with a concept that was all outdoors because of the pandemic,” says Roon. “The NYC streets were so empty,” continues the artist, adding: “The concept and direction is by Barry Steele, who had some wonderfully creative ideas such as using a noticeably desolate New York City as the backdrop, and interspersed color with black and white visuals to convey a sense of nostalgia.” 

“Grey” is a masterpiece that truly showcases the raw emotion that Eventually Epic is capable of conveying through their music. With their debut album set to release in April and multiple performances scheduled for later this year, fans can look forward to more soulful and captivating music from the indie folk band.
