“Atop sharp-edged, angular collisions, Orchards manage to cram approximately 5 killer hooks into the space of a single song” – DIY
“The band’s whip-smart math-pop is all glistening surface and immediate melody, but beneath this chrome-plated chassis lies a complex rhythmic engine” - Clash
Born from Brighton’s diverse musical breeding ground, indie quartet Orchards are among the cities brightest rising stars. Comprised of lifelong friends Sam Rushton (guitar) and Dan Fane (bass/vocals), who met drummer Will Lee-Lewis and vocalist Lucy Evers within their first week at university, the band are a resplendent mix of summer melodies and stellar hooks that threaten to be stuck in your head for days.
Hailed by Huw Stephens as ‘One To Watch’, the band have been supported by BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, Noisey, The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland, DIY, Dork, Upset and more. Combining left-field experimentation with startlingly prescient pop sensibilities , Orchards have been described as a “glittery gateway drug”, with a sound that is inherently positive, charming, shimmering and above all: fun.
