Orphan Boy are a rock/pop group formed in February 2005 from Cleethorpes, Lincolnshine. They soon moved to Manchester where they were signed by Concrete Recordings. The guys have an album entitled Passion, Pain and Loyalty, coming out on the 2nd August. The single “Pop Song” precedes the album and will be available from the 19th July.
“Pop Song” starts with a very old school nostalgic introduction. We are then hit with an awesome drum beat, great vocals, and a powerful but effective guitar riff. What really sticks out, is the vocals in that they accompany all the different sounds that are produced during the track. The instruments and vocals combine effortlessly to create a great single. If the sound of “Pop Song” is replicated in the up-coming album, we are definitely in for a treat. Orphan Boy have, without a doubt gone to town with this single, and have produced some amazing results.
“Pop Song” will be available as a digital download only. The album will be made available digitally as well as on CD.
In the lead up to the release of Passion, Pain and Loyalty, the guys will play the following gigs:
23rd – Proud, Camden LONDON
30th – Ruby Lounge MANCHESTER
31st – Kendal Calling KENDAL
6th – Gypsy Tears CLEETHORPES
