London based Sleeping Orchard have released their self-titled album at the beginning of June.
The 2 piece band have already released a number of EP’s since forming in 2013, but the band are back with a 9 track album that builds on their previous musical offerings. With a delightful fuzzy garage rock sound throughout, it is hard to believe it is just the guitars of Will McKay and drums of Ash Lowe, as it has a much richer sound to the songs than just that of a duo.
From the textured melodies of ‘Television Shows’ with the deep set and gravelly vocals, ‘Relief’ with an intriguing contrast of a light-hearted melody with an accompanying darker fuzz, to the infectious ‘I’m going To Be The One’, the tracks leave an impression from the outset. ‘I Know’ is a killer of a track as it thumps its way through a melodic beat, whilst final track ‘Spring Loaded Safety Cone (Dumb Dumb)’ grooves its way through a darker sounding melody. With a slightly psychedelic vibe throughout, this is definitely one of those albums you need to check out.
The new album is available from their band camp page in digital download format.
