The US synth-rock band The Gorgeous Oranges are set to release the LP Not Today Satan later this month.
The Gorgeous Oranges
The latest track to surface from the album – Animals , which was released as a stand alone single (available on bandcamp) on the 14th, – slips quietly out of the speakers, only to encase the listener in a puddling blues-ballad that demands full attention.
The subtle hum of keyboard laying under the gnarly-blues guitar riffs gives the track its completely absorbing demeanour with the superlative vocal and supporting harmonised voices presses an unexpected melancholia to the composition as the bass and percussion maintain the progression of Animals and deliver its palpable intensity of presence.
The English alt-funk duo Chimpshed A.D. pop up every few months with a new song.
Like excitedly unwrapping a present, each time a new song by Chimpshed A.D. arrives in my email inbox, I have no idea what to expect, but know it will be a welcome gift to the world of music.
Animals, which was made available within the past twenty four hours is no exception as the duo reveal almost three and a half minutes of hip-dipping psychedelic-funk, which needs an immediate hit of replay.
Long may Chimpshed A.D. continue to throw out their musical ideas, which always brighten the day.
