WL//WH Track Of The Day : ORCHIN “Hate”

Track Of The Day

Beguilling and charming since the start, in early 2016, with their distinctive blend of 80’s 4AD-influenced luscious dreampop, early The Cure’s guitar hooks and classic MBV shoegaze, Los Angeles‘ four-piece Orchin, fronted by guitarist/singer/songwriter Jeremy McLennan, simply continue unstintingly to gift us with gems of dazzling invention and addictive hooks.

The band are just dropped the amazing 2-track single “Hate // Talking Alone​/​Walking Away”.

In “Hate” the sighted and caressing voice floating just over frenzied crescendo of uplifting and scintillating jangle guitars that carry the song towards something genuinely unique and touching at once beautifully restrained and overflowing, apparently in stark contrast with his words of disgust, loneliness, and anger at the world, recalling a kind of jangle version of Prefab Sprout where Paddy McAloon-like vocals meet with Johnny Marr-esque sparkling guitar riffs creating soundscapes of magnified intensity and supreme refinement.
