Orchid Collective are set to launch their second single “Lay As Stone” with a date in Upstairs at Whelan’s on March 11th.
The Dublin quartet’s alt-folk treatment on the theme of world weariness never sounded so fresh. “Lay down and rest your troubled head // the world’s not on your side today”. Weaving harmonies amongst jangly guitars you can’t help but contemplate the world’s troubles and yet come out the end feeling elated. “All we need is our mind, cigarettes and a bed” sing the band. Reminding us that the biggest of problems can be resolved by taking a step back and taking another look.
Recorded by Mike Mormecha at Millbank Studios, Lisburn
Mixed by Stephen Dunne at Lamplight Studio, Dublin
Mastered by Fergal Davis
