Orations have released, what I would consider, a true album. I say true because every song, to me, gets to the very core of what music is all about. Imaginary and emotional exploration. The new album, titled “Wych Elm”, recalls a genuine time in music when alternative was called post modern and the guitars weeped along with the crooning vocals in poignant harmony.

“Wych Elm” by Orations is out now and available via Custom Made Music.
