Introducing: Orca Team
Seattle/Portland act Orca Team boasts an interesting and somewhat unusual sound that I describe as a mid-fi, semi-restrained surf pop with plenty of reverb and prominent bass lines. Oh, and it sounds great. They currently are on tour with dates in the eastern and midwest United States, and a few dates further west.
Their latest release is the 11-track Restraint album that they released last month. Here is a video for one of the album tracks, "Too Busy to Love Me" --
You can stream it the entire album here. If you're like me, you'll find the songs worming their way into you brain.
They have several other releases to their credit, which can be explored at the Bandcamp link below, and sourced via Bandcamp or their label, HHBTM Records (Happy Birthday to Me Records) in Athens, Georgia (link below).
The members of Orca Team are Dwayne Cullen (drums), Jessica B. (guitar), and Leif Anders (bass and vocals).
