‘Dark Around the Eyes’ is the latest release from Orange Vision, a band firmly in the ascendant having already enjoyed support from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music as well as earning coveted support slots for Superfood and Honeyblood on the NME New Breed Tour.
The four-piece from Oxford, influenced by post punk, glam and shoegaze, produce reverb drenched, melodic pop anthems with a new wave edge.
Formed two years ago when Ed and Matthew bonded over a love of clothes, music and a generally delinquent approach to their depressing surroundings and sapped music scene, they were later joined by Daniel and Jake. The band became a primary focus and what started as a driving growling rock and roll sneer has blossomed into a post punk psychedelic new wave dream.
Orange Vision are:
Edmund Quigley – Lead Vocals/Guitar
Jacob Mott – Backing Vocals/Drums
Matthew Holford – Lead Guitar
Daniel Jones – Bass Guitar
“We were bowled over by their soundcloud track “How You Feel”, which combines new wave guitars with a nifty spoken-word interlude featuring a lost Marc Bolan interview”
Matt Wilkinson, NME
“They have the look and feel of a great 90’s bands like Pulp and Kula Shaker, but with galloping doses of The Horrors and The Cure”
