Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, alt-rock group Big Orange return with their new single, ‘The Reason‘.
The brainchild of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Davis, they are heavily influenced by the classics such as Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones. The pop craftsmanship of Daniel’s songwriting is both refreshing and captivating. Following their July release ‘Apocketlipstick’, Big Orange follow up with their new track ‘The Reason’, delivers an upbeat vibe with underlying tones of sadness.
The track’s theme explores addictive love and the emotional battle within.
“It’s a paradox. The source of joy and the source of pain- it’s bittersweet”, says Daniel.
Their roots to hometown Harvey in the south-west of WA inspired the band name and is where they originally formed. Daniel’s vocals and guitar is complemented by life-long friends Tom Garvey on bass, Emma Adams on synths and percussion, and Jamie Gallacher on drums.
The band has maintained a loyal following since inception and has played alongside legends, Big Country, Jebediah and Ash. With extensive national airplay on FBI Radio and Double J, the group has also had regular features in RTRFM’s Sound Selection which landed them in the station’s Top 50 Most Played Tracks of 2018. Big Orange has been featured in Spotify’s ‘Chords & Cardigans’ Playlist and recently been featured in Bandcamp’s ‘New and Notable’ List.
‘The Reason’ is out NOW.
