Hometown: Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
Folk Rock / Minimalist / Dutch pop
Formed in 2008, The Orbans have combined a “do it yourself” indie attitude with a very unique style of pop music that is not afraid to show a little twang. The band from Fort Worth worked on their debut full length album ‘When We Were Wild’ with producer Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo), recorded live on the spot at Cedar Creek Recording in Austin. The Orbans can certainly draw comparisons to bands like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Big Star, Dr Dog and Ryan Adams but more importantly have created a debut record that takes the listener on a personal and infectious sonic journey with Peter Black’s wistful and heartfelt songs. When We Were Wild is currently climbing the CMJ radio charts and is in rotation at over 100 stations around the country. Their single “Like a Liar” was also recently picked for NPR’s Song Of The Day.
“Jaunty ’80s-pop-rock rhythm and raw guitars, plus a chorus of multi-part harmonies. Imagine The Replacements trying to fight off being possessed by The Beach Boys’ surfin’, drag-racin’, Hawaiian-shirt-wearin’ demons. Unlike anything anyone’s probably ever heard before.” – Fort Worth Weekly
