Wild Thing Presents, in association The Music proudly present...
Melbourne’s heavy experimental creatives Orsome Welles will be releasing their long awaited new EP titled Rise on May 26. The band will touring nationally in support of Rise across June and July.
Rise has been a long time coming, with its first two singles Build A World & Maestro released towards the end of 2016. Both songs caused quite a stir among industry and fans alike with their striking videos being produced by acclaimed film-maker, Adrian Goleby. Adrian will once again be at the helm for the next visual feast to be served up by the band in the very near future.
Frontman Michael Stowers comments: "For Rise we took a different approach based on how we wanted the end product to sound. We focussed on pre-production, and we think it is evident in the sound being a lot more reflective of our live show. We feel that Rise resembles where we are as a band, refreshed with new songs but still inspired by our original sound. We are seriously passionate about making music together, and Rise is the microcosmic baby of our passion."
Rise was produced, mixed and recorded by Matt D'Arcy at Basin Productions amongst the picturesque foot hills of Melbourne’s Dandenong ranges, with mastering duties handled by Steve Smart at Studios 301 in Sydney.
Orsome Welles ended 2016 on a major high, touring nationally with fellow Wild Thing Presents comrades Circles, and appearing at the sold out Progfest in Melbourne where they were a major crowd favourite, receiving rave reviews (see below);
