By Orange Fall
Rock? Orange Fall from Swansea take the pure form and do it sharp justice. Searing and original guitar licks and falsetto harmonies with lumber punching drum and bass. I can hear the smoke effects and sense the air guitars all around me. I can see the swirling hair and boggle at the backlit drum riser coming up on hydraulic jacks through the stage. Definitely a flashback: but I'm not sure I want to mindtravel to days when Aerosmith strode the World. The one change from the earlier demo is that these three songs are more clearly focused on the rocking out boogie stuff.
If you weren't there in the Glory Days, this stuff will certainly have the same sorts of membrane tickling effects as it did for your Mum and Dad. They play well and sing well. Belle and Sebastian they are NOT.
And all in three songs: Swimming with the Sharks, Inside Out and Three of Me. Check out the Web site.
