Orchestra Of Spheres Brothers And Sisters Of The Black Lagoon on LP
Born out of Wellington's fertile creative music scene in 2009, the Orchestra of Spheres quickly gained a crowd of devotees, entranced by their sonically and visually ecstatic live shows. Their sound is an explosive brew concocted from the quicksilver synths of Mos Iocos, the intricate bass lines of EtonalE, the psychedelic biscuit tin guitar work of Baba Rossa and the the primitive, powerful stick work of new drummer, Woild Boin.
Brothers And Sisters Of The Black Lagoon was recorded mid-summer 2015 at Pyramid Club, Wellington, New Zealand. The band state: "We're not a political band. We want to make beautiful things and give love to people through sound. Our music bounces off the ground and goes up up up up into the air...But we're living in dark times. It's a time of remote war, mass deceit and money worship. The mainstream is porn on P. Somehow the mood of the time filtered into these recording sessions, in an abstract way. The songs on Brothers and Sisters of the Black Lagoon aren't ‘about' anything. We all feed from the same giant soup of images. Sometimes lyrics bob to the surface and we spoon them to our lips."
"A fantastic gumbo of warped, wandering guitar grooves, jangling percussion, infectious bass, intricate drumwork, and irresistable rhythmic bass lines." - Stereogum
"Futuristic and unsettingly primal." - Uncut
