Two years have passed since the band emerged from their boring Chicago suburb as five high schoolers hellbent on reminding the world that American rock & roll is still alive. A lot has happened since then for The Orwells. They've recorded with their favorite contemporary producers, shared the stage with childhood heroes and raked in accolades from distinguished publications. Their television appearances on Later With Jools Holland and The Late Show With David Letterman in the past year gave audiences around the world a taste of what concertgoers have seen during the band's recent tours with Arctic Monkeys, FIDLAR and Palma Violets. And now, as they release their irresistibly raucous yet masterfully architected Disgraceland on Canvasback Music.
"...a mixture of back-breaking intensity, youthful tomfoolery and the utterly unhinged... With their brattish sensibility and near endless displays of energy, The Orwells seem to tap into that perennial youthful outcast in all of us – the kid who is forever being dragged to detention on reputation alone." Clash Music
New Heavenly Recordings signings Kid Wave, make breezy and melodious guitar-pop that catches the ear instantly. Having just come off the road with Childhood and preparing to release their new Gloom EP, the London four-piece look set for a busy 2015.
Placed atop the grey, lacklustre hills of suburban Brighton comes an unexpectedly sparkling sound. The gloomy flamboyance of Golding far exceeds that of their surroundings, presenting a sound that is as uplifting as it is heartbreaking. Formed in 2013 by four high school sweethearts Kipp Boucher, Liam Bemrose, Harvey Daltrey and Louis Ayto, Golding play a twisted contortion of indie rock and melodic shoegazey madness.
