Liverpudlian psychedelic singer-songwriter unleashes grungy, fuzzed-out new single
Produced alongside Merseyside producer Jon Withnall (who has worked with the likes of Coldplay and The Coral), “W.C.B.T” sees Liverpool’s Dr Orange showcase his ability in creating high-energy, melancholic British indie rock tracks. The one-man band conjures one of his grungiest tracks to date, a guitar-driven song where the vocals provide a melodic chant over the repeated, fuzzed-out power chords. Driven by a thumping lo-fi drum groove and hazy rhythm guitar parts, Dr Orange’s smooth vocal twang captures the spirit of Merseyside’s own Miles Kane (The Rascals, The Last Shadow Puppets).
“‘W.C.B.T’ started off as a little jangly pop song that I wrote and recorded a while back,” explains Dr Orange. “It was only actually when I was listening back to it months later that I decided to add the big riff, making that the focal point of the song. I feel like it’s definitely got similarities to my debut single in terms of its intensity and ballsiness, and it’s without a doubt one of my favorites to play live.
“Lyrically I guess it’s about liking someone who’s not interested in you which in turn just makes you like them more – there’s definitely some really cool lines in there. It’s for sure got some apocalyptic space rock vibes going on which just get bigger and bigger as the tune goes on – it’s a proper bop.”
