Orlando Seale and The Swell from 10 ish
Some call it Punk Folk, some say it’s like having the Arcade Fire in your bedroom, they say they are ten friends playing music that swings wildly from the epic to the intimate, the melancholic to the euphoric. Orlando Seale and the Swell, an incredible 10-piece orchestral band, bring you songs of night and the city, the lost and found on the underground, and the club card redeemers seeking salvation in supermarkets.
Frequent performers in the quirky Favela Chic in Shoreditch (I feel like it’s a band/venue match made in heaven), Orlando and the Swell will be celebrating the launch of their new single These Streets by giving away some free downloads of the single on the night, as well as selling limited edition physical copies of it with bonus material. This band are truly something to be seen live; they blow my socks off every time and always promise something different.
Wear blue to be part of the Swell.
Here’s the song These Streets soundtracking a short film of Orlando Seale and The Swell on their recent trip to Paris…
