Toronto quartet The Beaches release their cleverly-spun ode to the Greek mythological figure, “Orpheus.” The versatile alt-rockers infuse “Orpheus” with dreamy synths and an energetic beat, introducing an indie-pop inflection to their catalogue. 

In “Orpheus,” The Beaches reimagine their lover as the ill-fated musician of the same name. Gleaning glimpses of mythos over a familiar backdrop, vocalist Jordan Miller relates, “Orpheus played his favourite songs when we were in his basement / We would fool around and chill out on his couch while he played his mustang.” A vibrating beat and memorable guitar line thread together memories from a long-lost romance.

The song’s propulsive beat is emphasized by the repeating mantra, “There’s no point in looking back if there is something you cannot get back to / Time moves faster than you know it feel those things than let them go right past you.” The Beaches learn from Orpheus’ retrogressive fatal mistake of turning back and instead, they choose to push forward.

Lead vocalist Jordan Miller says of the track:

“I’ve always been interested in Greek myths. One of my favourites is the Orpheus legend, a story about an artist who is so in love with his deceased wife that he tries to bring her back to life, only to lose her again. There’s a lot about the story that resonates with me, especially when I think about past loves. It’s tempting to look back and put people on pedestals, but when you always look back you can never look forward and see what beautiful things might be coming for you.”

The Beaches are currently on a North American tour where they recently celebrated two sold-out hometown shows at Toronto’s HISTORY. They’ve sold out additional shows across the country including Corona Theatre (Montreal, QC) and London Music Hall (London, ON).

This North American venture follows experience opening for iconic acts such as The Rolling Stones and Foo Fighters, as well as many other critically acclaimed artists (Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morisette, The Aces, Passion Pit, and Eagles of Death Metal). Their last album was described by Elton John as “The best rock album of last year,” and they’ve been recognized with two Juno Awards for Rock Album of the Year (2022) and Breakthrough Group of the Year (2018). 

The Beaches have garnered over 52 million streams across Spotify, Apple and Amazon Music. Having sold 30,000 albums in Canada alone, it’s no surprise that they have found themselves awarded with five #1 singles on Canadian Alternative Radio.
