For every mood


The sound of bored suburban teenagers thrashing away in their parents garage, Chicago five-piece The Orwells inherit the brattish, high energy, adolescent rock'n'roll spirit of Iggy and the Stooges, The Ramones and The Buzzcocks. Formed by school friends Mario Cuomo (vocals), Dominic Corso (guitar), Matt O'Keefe (guitar) and twins Grant (bass) and Henry Brinner (drums) in 2009, the band started out playing covers by The Strokes, before self-recording debut Remember When (2012) in O'Keefe's basement. Too young to play at local bars, they were nevertheless signed to the independent Autumn Tone label run by blogger Justin Gage and their reputation grew when single Mallrats (La La La) was used in a US television advert for MySpace. DJ Zane Lowe named Dirty Sheets the hottest record in the world and the band gave a storming performance on Later.with Jools Holland before releasing EPs Other Voices and Who Needs You before supporting the Arctic Monkeys on their American tour in 2014.
