Welcome to BSM, Brighton's own purveyors of glittery alt-pop - Orchards!
Previously described as a “glittery gateway drug” and combining left-field experimentation with startlingly prescient pop sensibilities, Orchards are following in the footsteps of luminaries Everything Everything and Foals with their accessible take on the instrumental complexities and effects wizardry of math rock stalwarts like Tera Melos and TTNG.
Having so far appeared at festivals including the likes Handmade, TRUCK, YNOT and Alternative Escape, they have also performed as part of the global music series Sofar Sounds and have been featured on playlists curated by Spotify & Buzzfeed, alongside radio play from the likes of BBC Introducing, Juice Radio and BBC Radio 6 Music.
"There's more to Orchards than meets the eye. The band's whip-smart math-pop is all glistening surface and immediate melody, but beneath this chrome-plated chassis lies a complex rhythmic engine." - CLASH Magazine
With more exciting things to come in 2018, Orchards will be coming to a stage near you very soon!
