Urban Songs & Pics

Back to overview

Cities are places where desire meets action. They are waypoints in countless lives, the destination of weekend trips or permanent moves, and an alternative to country living. They are sung about in music that either celebrates their virtues or laments their shortcomings. Once again, we are delighted to bring you a curated mix of songs—this time about cities, which is where we here at AVORIS mostly operate ... Happy listening, and have a lovely autumn!

Wild, beautiful, bizarre, steeped in melancholy. Old and new. So many feelings captured through music. Voilà ...
