Oranj Son arrive with ‘Psycho Disco Face’. Oranj Son are the latest band to join the roster of Edge Hill University’s The Label Recordings, the team who discovered Hooton Tennis Club. Comprising of Kieran Linford (guitar, vocals), Lew Yii (percussion), Brad Welch (bass) and Matt Linford (keys, guitar), they collectively deliver a healthy groove, with heavier indie-rock and US psych colours, under-pinned with 1980’s keys, yet still manage to conjure laden hooks which become more nourishing the more you hear that chorus line “Psycho Disco Face” continues hitting home with fair aplomb.
Easily the best thing I have heard from Ellesmere Port in ages, nostalgia tinged and as every bit as vibrant, Oranj Son bright debut single packs a good punch. 7.8/10
