Chicago garage rockers The Orwells have had an exciting 2017, with the band having dropped their highly anticipated sophomore LP, Terrible Human Beings, in addition to scorching the earth at countless festivals in between tours with the likes of Weezer and the Pixies. Now, to put a cherry atop the year, the band just dropped two previously unheard tracks from the Terrible Human Beings sessions.
“Vanilla” is a reliably badass rocker riding atop an infectious classic rock riff, while “What’s So Entertaining” cranks up the volume with pummeling drums and a chorus that grasps at the rafters. Both were recorded with producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele). Check them out below.
The Orwells are currently touring North America with the Pixies. See the full dates below.
