WELCOME TO OINOZ WORLD!
WE MAKE THREE WINES WHICH USE MUSIC TO BREAK THE RULES AND DELIGHT THE SENSES WITH A DIFFERENT KIND OF PROJECT.
OINOZ IS MUCH MORE THAN WINE; IT’S A WAY OF LIFE. THIS IS OUR STORY.
CARE TO JOIN US?
“A wine band with its own style and sound.”
The band presents their latest work under the title “Wine Rocks”, a declaration of principles that represents evolution at all levels, compared to their previous material.
We want to accompany you through life, share in your favourite moments, and make them even more memorable. It would be extremely unjust for a toast not to evoke all the senses, which is why OINOZ believes in music. A sensory celebration to be enjoyed by sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. Wine is not just to be drunk; it’s to be experienced!
This song has the Claude Gros seal. A mid-tempo song with a strong, rhythmic guitar baseline and a typical Oinoz counterpoint. Verdejo originally composed the baseline on the piano, which was then replaced by guitar.
The song is a powerful portrayal of Claude Gros’ hardest moments; the rollercoaster of emotions brought on by the breakup with his first love.
This song is fast, direct, rough and rabid.
The first chords were written by Crianza during his gap year. Legend has it that, one day, while he was busking as a street musician, someone stole his day’s takings. With no money to pay for a place to sleep that night, he unleashed all his built-up rage. Later, the other members of Oinoz added in their own arrangements, giving prominence to the melodic bridge with hard stanzas.
A hit in every sense of the word, with influences from all three members of Oinoz.
Right from the start, we’re faced with a completely new kind of song. The soft, relaxing rhythm of the ukulele adds a peaceful yet colourful sound. “Let’s Wine” speaks of hopes and dreams. An internal meditation at a vital moment for each of us, where we must decide between what we want and what we really need.
If we’re lucky, they’re the same thing.
THE WAYS OF THE LORD
This is like a hymn. A song to listen to at certain points in your life. Some of the first chords were improvised by Crianza in his studio during his first year of university. Now with Oinoz, Claude Gros suggested giving the song a heavier rhythm with a baseline that fit the melody like a glove. Verdejo adds yet another distinct touch with a Hammond organ that lurks almost hidden beneath the surface, but without which the song would not be what it is.
This is usually the song chosen to close out our concerts.
The “Let’s Wine” video is directed by Verdejo. It’s based on a short film shot during his time at university studying History of Art. The aesthetic is a cross between that of a graphic novel and a roll of photo negatives. Verdejo called the short “Life Sounds”, in which he captured the vital energy that surrounds us and how it influences each of us differently.
Recovering that project, Let’s Wine inherits and relaunches its message, empowered by the essence of Oinoz: energy, identity… and wine.
