Born from Brighton’s diverse musical breeding ground, indie quartet Orchards are among the cities brightest rising stars. Comprised of lifelong friends Sam Rushton (guitar) and Dan Fane (bass/vocals), who met drummer Will Lee-Lewis and vocalist Lucy Evers within their first week at university, the band are a resplendent mix of summer melodies and stellar hooks that threaten to be stuck in your head for days. Married with an unbreakable bond that makes the four-piece inseparable, they form a sound that is inherently positive, charming, shimmering and above all: fun.
Their energetic live show ? which often sees Evers treat the venue as her personal playground ? has taken them across the globe, playing shows in the UK and Europe, selling out their debut London headline show, support slots with Hippo Campus, Fatherson and Pom Poko as well as packed out slots at The Great Escape, Y Not Festival, Truck, and 2000 Trees Festival among many others. In the spring of 2019, Orchards set their sights on conquering SXSW and The New Colossus Festival in New York, gaining media attention from the likes of Alternative Press, DIY and Noisey and propelling them with a drive and momentum to return in 2021.
Orchards are bashing down the doors of the indie world with no intention of slowing down. Armed with a slew of bangers and ballads alike, they’re a band whose work ethic and creative outgoings make them one of the most exciting bands around, but more importantly a shining beacon of catharsis, anthems and hope.
