ORCHARDS announce debut album LOVECORE + share new single ‘Sincerely Overwhelmed’ | On tour across the UK this month for Independent Venue Week

January 14, 2020





Brighton quartet Orchards today announce details of their long-awaited debut album  Lovecore, which will be released on 13th March via Big Scary Monsters. The band today also share their new single ‘Sincerely Overwhelmed’, a song that explores coming to terms with the fact you might not be handling difficult times as well as you think you are.

About their debut album, Orchards say: “It’s our statement, a flag in the ground letting people know we’re here and this is exactly what we’re all about. It’s the product of years of touring, meeting new people, hard times, good times, loss, friendships and growth. We’re starting a party and everyones invited”.

Preorder Lovecore

Lovecore is a lifetime in the making for Orchards, written crammed into drummer Will’s bedroom after working 9-6 days, on lunch breaks, on tour – in every spare second the band had. Their debut album is bursting with their signature Orchards sound, with a heavy focus on killer melodies and singer Lucy’s heartfelt poetic lyrical outpourings centred around her experience with loss, mental health struggles, the environment and relationships.

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. Combining left-field experimentation with startlingly prescient pop sensibilities, Orchards have been described as a “glittery gateway drug”, with a sound that is inherently positive, charming, shimmering and above all: fun. Orchards will release their debut album Lovecore on March 13th 2020 via Big Scary Monsters.
