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.

Video: The Orwells: “The Righteous One” Live on ‘Letterman’

posted by Oscar June 11, 2014

Last night The Orwells made their way back to the Late Show with David Letterman to promote the release of their new album, Disgraceland. The song of choice this time around was “The Righteous One,” which has an excellent buildup with an infectious bass line that worked perfectly on the small screen stage and impressed Letterman once more.

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 – “The Righteous One”

posted by Oscar February 3, 2014

The Orwells debuted a new track with Zane Lowe titled, “The Righteous One,” and soon after The Fader premiered the visuals that go along with it. The track is a good, modern Garage tune following that classic soft-loud formula; you can hear an early White Stripes influence in this as well. The video, directed by Eddie O’Keefe as per usual, keeps it equally cool by shooting multi-angle black-and-white closeups of each member of the band performing the track. See it above.
