“The best Scottish pop band since Orange Juice” – Melody Maker


For those of you unfamiliar with The Orchids’ work, their music is bright pop music, crystal clear, but in no way could it be described as featherweight pop. 
The enigmatic five piece band formed in Glasgow, and have released some of the finest pop songs of their generation since humble beginnings in the suburbs, where the three founder members grew up and started the band in 1986. Their first six singles and three albums were met with widespread critical acclaim, much of this from outside  the UK.

Ahead of their time in the early 90’s, it is only now that many have realised how fascinating and mature those earlier releases were.

“This group are a magical box of delights; always were and always will be.”
