Lexington-based duo RYVOLI – comprised of Samantha Howard and Jenn Whiteman – recently released a sultry, folk-tinged single titled “Ulysses”, and we can’t stop listening to it. Their harmonies are mellifluous in both the sweetest and most powerful ways you could imagine. The soundscape is the way that you think a perfect summer night might feel.

And the song has a message as well. The duo wrote it with a book about the Apollo 11 space mission as inspiration. The flaws with that mission “For better or for worse, we have no control over life’s smallest happenings that can sometimes become the biggest turning points,” RVYOLI says of the song. As introspective as it is, it’s the perfect song to close your eyes and enjoy in a soothing moment, wherever you are.

Keep up with RYVOLI here.
