Song of the day: Orca Station - Bluer/Alas

Orca Station is a two piece, alt-rock band. Devon is the drummer and Rich plays all the rest ( they've been friends since they were 5yrs old). They were parts of another band previously and got together for fun over the summer of 2022. A few months later they recorded our first album 'Pangs' as Orca Station. 

“The response has been encouraging, being that maybe seven people knew we existed pre-release. So why not put it in front of people, and play out, which we love doing most? Not looking for accolades or to take over the world, just to play. We were satisfied jamming for jamming's sake, but didn't want to lose our songs. They're something to us and perhaps might be to someone else.”

This is their new song, called Bluer. After a soft start, the song explodes in a very energetic and contagious guitar riff. I really like the frantic drumming and the change of pace/mood between verses and chorus, with vocal performance reminding me of Gavin Rossdale (Bush) during the most energetic parts. If you like Grunge, you will love this one.

This one below is another song called, Alas, a little more constant in its pace but with the usual amazing performance and a straightforward sound. I love the sound of the guitar and the super energetic drumming. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and don't forget to follow Orca Station as well.
