Orbs – Asleep Next To Science by Alan Chapman

Out Now On – Equal Vision Records

This super group sound so British, they are that quirky and oddball.

Made up of members from Between the Buried and Me, Fear Before and Cradle of Filth this lot go out of their way to constantly screw with any preconceived ideas of song structures and how melodies should go together.

You would think this would make for uneasy listening, far from it there are huge slabs of childlike naïve innocence running though every song on here that just makes you smile.

The sort of innocence that allows them to just go for it, try anything that comes into their heads and you will let them do it because it sounds like something amazing is being made. To be this mad but never unlistenable will turn Orbs into a cult band, but I am going to say the obvious-my god do they remind me of The Cardiacs or what, in a very good way.
