Chicagoquintet The Orwells recently unveiled first single off their forthcoming debut album ‘Disgraceland’ out on June 2nd. The track ‘Southern Comfort’ due for release on May 12th via Canvasback/Atlantic Records premiered on Zane Lowe on March 31st, is a punchy album opener, resonating through your ears as some sort of melodically unstoppable merry-go-round.
Written a year ago in drummer’s Matt O’ Keefe’s basement “It’s a song that celebrates the simple things in life. Greasy beef sandwiches, old style, ladies and the USA.” as O’ Keefe himself described it.
The Orwells will return to the UK in June, for a short tour. Be sure to catch them!
