With fuzzy guitars and a pounding beat, Liverpool’s own Dr Orange returns with his new single ‘W.C.B.T.’. Playing into his self-described brand of ‘hi-frequency rock & roll’, ‘W.C.B.T.’ is a song driven by its unfailing drums and catchy guitar riff. Dr. Orange’s hazy vocals nest perfectly atop the production, creating a song to put on repeat.Continue reading “Dr Orange – ‘W.C.B.T’”

Who were your musical influences growing up?
Our parents were very into their music, so we started off on their record collection really. Our dad was big into blues but also rock, so there were lots of Who records, Zeplin etc. Our mum was more folk so she was a big Dylan fan, Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Mitchel. Then they both loved the Beatles and the stones so we had a solid musical upbringing! We grew up in Camden so obviously indie became our thing as we got older, and then clubbing so we got more into house. And growing up our grandparents played in orchestras so we were encouraged into classical music. We never really had an option to do anything else!Continue reading “Child of the Parish”

We met Rudy (bassist/back vocalist) and André (keyboardist/back vocalist) in Paris years after, we were all connected super fast and the complicity was here.”Continue reading “Reaven”
