Since forming in 2011, Dresden based progressive rock band Orange Utan have been challenging audiences with their brand of bold and expressive music, building a strong following in the local rock scene.
Their debut album 'JETZT MACHT!' released in 2014 set out their stall of creating a contemporary vision of rock music. Retaining the same line up, they have developed into a cohesive unit that creates energetic live performances, which BPM Pod summed up as:
'(They) develop a connection to the audience, and give a sense that we're all in this intense, crazy party together.'
To capture their renowned live performances onto their latest album 'katastrophil', they performed live in the studio and worked with Thies Neu (DŸSE, Heisskalt, Boysetsfire) to mix the album. The result is an album that seamlessly transitions between the direct and energetic through to expansive atmospheric waves of sound which MangoWave describes as:
'A consistent, coherent, versatile and powerful album full of force, soul and brains.'
To build onto their musical development, they worked visual artist Peggy Berger to complement the sonic and thematic elements of their music. This resulted in a unique circus themed microcosm, exposing the absurdity of modern day life, that is equally satisfying as it is ambitious.
Currently they are writing their third album, which you can be sure will continue to develop their unique personality and push their expressive vision one step further.
