The Orwells – Live From Electrical Audio

The Orwells Live from Electrical Audio

Earlier this year, The Orwells released one of our favorite records of 2014 with Disgraceland and this week they’ve released a collection of some cuts from that album for an EP of live recordings at Electrical Audio. The EP (Live From Electrical Audio) consists of live studio versions of songs, “The Righteous One,” “Dirty Sheets,” “Let It Burn,” “Who Needs You,” and “Southern Comfort.”

These live versions are pretty similar to what you’d be able to hear at a show of theirs, gritty vocals and perfectly fuzzy guitars but minus the moshing. Hear it by clicking over to Beats Music.

POD Exclusive Interview: The Orwells Talk New Album ‘Disgraceland’

The Orwells - Disgraceland

The Orwells are set to release their new album Disgraceland this coming June 3rd and we reached out to them to get a better look into the making of their sophomore record. The band has created plenty of buzz for themselves and this album by touring the nation with Twin Peaks and largely thanks to their famous Letterman performance, making Disgraceland something that everyone is keeping a close eye on in hopes that it delivers on the hype. At first glance, I can tell you that it definitely does.

I got a hold of guitarist Matt O’Keefe to talk about their writing process, the producers they worked with and the meaning behind calling it Disgraceland. You can stream the album on Spotify before its official release and read our full interview below. Continue Reading

Video: The Orwells – “Dirty Sheets” [NSFW]

posted by Oscar December 3, 2013

The Orwells have unveiled their latest video for the new song, “Dirty Sheets.” For the visuals the band keeps it retro, using  an old-fashioned lense to capture a model playing the record followed by a good ol’ fashioned striptease. The song lends itself perfectly for that, with its dirty guitar riff and singer Mario Cuomo’s gravelly vocals.

Check it out above.

Video: The Orwells – “Dirty Sheets” (Live In London)

posted by Oscar November 21, 2013

The Orwells are quickly conquering the UK one club at a time and on one recent date our fellow Chicagoans performed their latest track, “Dirty Sheets” live in London. This live rendition of the song is not as polished as what you hear on the studio version but the raw energy that’s felt within the performance is exactly what gives this clip its charm. These dudes breathe Rock & Roll and it’s more than evident in this video.

See the live performance above.

The Orwells – “Dirty Sheets”

The Orwells - Dirty Sheets

The Orwells have unleashed a new track today and it’s a filthy awesome one. Their new song, “Dirty Sheets,” debuted on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1’s show.

The track screams 70’s “garage” Rock (production sound and all), while singer Mario Cuomo sounds a bit like if Jim Morrison had gone Punk. I’m digging the direction this band taking for their latest project.

Hear “Dirty Sheets” below.
