ONLAP – ‘Miracle’

A noisy outlier in a sea of pop and jazz, hard rock Parisian band ONLAP has somehow managed to build itself a huge fan base over 13 years, two albums, and tons of singles. Their latest track, ‘Miracle’, will add to their near mythological status.



‘Miracle’ is a top of the line, shot of hard rock that never lets up once it kicks in. Guitars push their amps to breaking point, with start-stop riffs and swirling choruses. Synth lays below the surface, as if controlled rage, which frontman Guillaume puts into words. Bass and drums hold down the rhythm like a well-oiled machine with a furiously beating heart.
