Orchard’s new track ‘Darling‘ shimmers with the band’s trademark appeal; an uplifting mix of delectable vocals and hypercolour guitar licks. Elements of the 80s are certainly present here, but for every nostalgic glisten there’s a modern touch too. Like HAIM, Brighton four-piece Orchards have used the best of decades past to create a sound that’s right on the money for the 2017 audience, whilst having an oh-so familiar quality that’s impossible to ignore.
Recorded with producer Thomas Le Beau Morley (Wolf Alice, Delta Sleep), their latest dose of glittery math-pop masterfully flits between sounding full and sparse, creating euphoric peaks and intimate lows throughout. Here’s another surefire winner for your dynamite summer playlist.
