The Orwells have announced details of their new EP for June, and three debut UK live dates for later this month. ‘Other Voices’ EP will be released through National Anthem (HAIM, Chvrches) and the band’s own East End Records on 24th June, and is preceded by a headline show in London, and two performances at The Great Escape in Brighton. The five track EP will be fronted by both a Dave Sitek produced (TV On The Radio/Yeah Yeah Yeahs) version of the title track, and the band’s original basement demo. Formed at school in 2008, The Orwells are five young guys from Chicago, playing straight up rock’n’roll. Cousins Mario Cuomo (vocals) and Dominic Corso (guitar), twins Grant and Henry Brinner (bass and drums), and Matt O’Keefe (guitar), have already been described as ‘teenage icons’ by NME, and are causing a huge buzz on both sides of the Atlantic in part due to their frenetic, live show that feels like it could go off the rails at any moment – with the audience in full participation.
