‘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”
Tomorrow is the day, looking forward to playing at the bullingdon with some above average bands. Now sashay, away
