Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 album from the Alt-Rock act. Produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Cloud Nothings, the War on Drugs, Explosions in the Sky), ORPHAN is a collection of songs immersed in classic post punk and indie rock ‘n’ roll circa 1989-1991, exploring the sonic adventurers and emotional heft of artists such as Roxy Music, Wire, and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. The guitars are rich and atmospheric, the rhythms subtle and fluid yet more powerful at the same time. Throughout the album, singer SeanVan Vleet’s raw croon rises to match the band’s musicality, conveying anxieties, secrets, and a heartfelt longing for transcendence.
