Bel Epoq – Rain in July

Bel Epoq - Rain in July"Bel Epoq" from Germany presents "Rain in July", a cap­tiv­at­ing synth-pop song with a touch of syn­thwave. The song's intro is catchy and dom­in­ated by a crisp arpeg­gia­t­or sequence that imme­di­ately cap­tures my atten­tion. The beat is fresh and clev­erly com­bines mod­ern ele­ments with a nos­tal­gic 80s style.

Ariane Jahn's vocals are par­tic­u­larly impress­ive, com­ing across won­der­fully and always remind­ing me strongly of Kate Bush's glory years. It's unfor­tu­nate that Kate Bush turned away from synth-pop, but that's anoth­er story. Ariane Jahn per­fectly cap­tures the song's hope­ful yet mel­an­chol­ic mood with her voice.

"Rain in July" is alto­geth­er a gentle and very emo­tion­al song, per­fect for quiet hours. The atmo­sphere cre­ated by the com­bin­a­tion of synth-pop and syn­thwave cre­ates a kind of music­al jour­ney through time, com­bin­ing both nos­tal­gia and mod­ern sounds.

Although the song has many pos­it­ive aspects, I per­son­ally miss a strong bridge that could give the song some more dynam­ics. Such a pas­sage could offer the track an addi­tion­al cli­max and increase the ten­sion even more.

Lyrics of 'Bel Epoq – Rain in July'

Too many clouds for July
It shouldn’t be raining
It shouldn’t be raining
It shouldn't be rain­ing right now
Right now

Too many words from your mouth
They should remain in
They should remain in
They should remain in your mouth
Your mouth

I float away in your river
Will you help me or is it too much to
Too much to
Is it too much to ask?

I know today that I’m the giver
You’re the taker
You take my
You take my love
Will you take me home?

Too many doubts in my mind
They shouldn’t be made in
They shouldn’t be made in
They shouldn’t be made in my head
My head

Too many times you have said
I keep complaining
I keep complaining
I keep com­plain­ing 'bout that
'Bout that

I float away in your river
Will you help me or is it too much to
Too much to
Is it too much to ask?

I know today that I’m the giver
You’re the taker
You take my
You take my love
Will you take me home?

Bel Epoq about 'Rain in July'

„Too many clouds for July, it shouldn’t be rain­ing right now.“ It’s sum­mer. But instead of enjoy­ing the warm tem­per­at­ures, you watch the rain out­side your win­dow. Heartbroken and alone. You start to real­ize, that you were always the giver, but nev­er the taker in this relationship.

With „Rain in July“ German syn­thwave duo BEL EPOQ deliv­ers a mel­an­chol­ic dark wave soundtrack for the sum­mer. A hyp­not­iz­ing drum­beat, slightly detuned synth hooks and not at least Ariane’s sweet and cap­tur­ing voice make this track so unique and irresistible.
