Single: Orchid Collective - L.A.Z.Y

Orchid Collective L.A.Z.Y.

Info: It's almost a year since Dublin-based indie-folk four-piece Orchid Collective sent a very noticeable ripple across the Irish music lake with their debut EP Courage, which featured in REMY's Best EP's of 2016. Having returned last month with single 'Lay As Stone', David O'Shea (lead vocals, guitar), Shea Tohill (lead guitar, vocals), Hugh O’Neill (bass, vocals) and Darra Doyle (drums, vocals) waste no time knocking out another superb single in the form of 'L.A.Z.Y'.

It's always a good hall-mark of a band when their guitar sound begins to become instantly recognisable as something they've crafted themselves and sets them apart from peers, so it is with the opening of 'L.A.Z.Y' and its glittering solo. A warm deep vocal and uptempo rhythm then carve out a path towards the middle of the track before the spark-plug kicks a rushing burst of energy into the track and all of the elements which make Orchid Collective such an enticing live prospect fuse themselves together, harmonies, swift rolling guitar progressions and a rock-steady percussion. 

Five years ago Irish fans of the genre would look outward to U.K. and U.S. acts to satisfy their desire for quality song-writing and a sound whose energy would lift them up from the core, with Orchid Collective we have a band who have contributed greatly to bringing those wandering ears back home.

Orchid Collective play The Workman's Club on Wellington Quay, Dublin 2 on the 25th of November with support from Silences. Tickets are available via here.
