Psychedelic shoegazers, Wall Of Orange, from Dallas, TX, have recently released their self-titled debut album, off which now comes a second single in the form of an exhilarating, colorful video that brings back thoughts of the more trippy side of nineties' British alternative rock, like The Stone Roses, The Verve, Spacemen 3, but also some of the early fuzziness of Smashing Pumpkins.
In relation to the album's inception and the creativity behind it, vocalist and guitarist, Gary Parks, says: "I've always loved big, dreamy, lush soundscapes so the general direction was obvious. I really pushed myself sonically, and wanted to achieve good cohesion from song to song. The songs all tie in to a theme of recovery, and writing them was a very cathartic process for me," and adds, "The album was born coming out of a dark period in my life. I want these songs to lift people up the way writing them did for me. The album unfolds as a reflection on memories of profound experiences, and remembering who I truly am, both as a musician and as a human being."
Although a fairly new band, Wall Of Orange with their whimsical debut have just verified themselves as one of the strongest upcoming acts of not just the restive sub-genres that they serve, but of a much broader notion of rock music in general.
