Geelong’s ORB have today premiered their video for ‘First And Last Men’ via Tiny Mixtapes. The track comes from their debut LP Birth out Friday 1 July via Flightless / Remote Control Records.
Tiny Mixtapes describe the video: “If hard Sci-Fi progenitor Olaf Stapledon had drowned his respect for rationality in absinthe and laudanum, the resultant fantastical ravings might’ve turned out something like this”
The trio of kids from Geelong, Australia pack some seriously futuristic sludge. A heaping helping of proto-metal chops meets paranoid sci-fi fantastical ravings, replete with some tasty syntheisiser werk, and lovingly close mic’d to perfection by Total Control’s own Mikey Young. These epics swing with demonic swagger and crackle with the static of a menacing future, twisting and churning through loose-limbed riffery, all punctuated by a wail emanating from behind enemy lines.
ORB are proggy, in-the-pocket, head-trippy fuzz, on LP for your top shelf stash, and plans are in the works to bring their dystopian groove your way soon.
