WILD SWEET ORANGE
The Whale EP (Nervous Blood / Canvasback Music)
Listening to Wild Sweet Orange is a bit like looking back at your childhood, and out toward your future at the same time. Their music evokes at once a certain aching nostalgia and an uplifting hopefulness--all within the walls of a visceral, emotion-driven rock band. This is music that makes you feel something, music that makes you want to listen.
The band just released an EP called The Whale on their own label, Nervous Blood, on November 6. Canvasback Music (Columbia Records) will be releasing WSO's full-length record next year.
There's an innocence here that is sometimes heart-wrenching and apparent, and sometimes buried beneath layers of gritty guitars, precise, urgent drums, and the vocals and lyrics of someone way beyond the years of 23-year-old frontman Preston Lovinggood.
Lovinggood, along with Garret Kelly, Chip Kilpatrick, and Taylor Shaw are from Birmingham, AL and they've got the southern charm to prove it. They half-jokingly call their music "fun for the whole family" and they're right--there's a little bit of something for everybody in there, as long as you're willing to let go...just a little bit.
