For much the same reason that I love ‘Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros,’ I also love ‘Orlando Seale and The Swell’ – because alongside their great music, they all have the best fun together and you just want to get up and be a part of their gang.
Some have called Orlando Seale and The Swell’s music ‘Punk Folk’ and have likened them to ‘having the Arcade Fire in your bedroom.’ Handsome Orlando (right), always beautifully articulate, describes them as “ten friends playing music that swings wildly from the epic to the intimate, the melancholic to the euphoric.”
I love their song ‘These Streets’ (released next month) which you can listen to whilst watching this video Emma Seale, Orlando’s gorgeous wife, filmed recently in Paris. I am sure you will, like me, wish you’d been there to join in with all their “fun, fun, fun!”
“He’s a lucky little ape man, in his silk top hat,
He’s gonna bang his chest if you look at him like that…"
