Nothing Rhymes with Orange
Nothing Rhymes with Orange
Their catchy melodies and foreign sound began turning heads of avid music fans who clamored for something different than the local music scene had to offer... great songs. Now writing enough music to debut one or two new songs at each show, the group released an EP, Under a Spell, to showcase some of the new material. The CD sold quickly and they soon began collaborating and recording selected tracks from their roster with the likes of Grammy-winning producer, Charles Dye, and Grammy-winning mix enineer, Bob Rosa. Polite Gothic, released independently in 2004, took the group to a national audience by virtue of college radio. The CD achieved steady rotation during the years of 2005 and 2006. Released in the fall of 2007, their first UK single, Billy the Kid, was named amongst “Best Singles of 2007” by Billy Sloan at Clyde 1 Radio in Glasgow, Scotland.
Kill the Vibe, mixed by London’s legendary Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Peter Framton), was also named amongst best singles of 2008 by Billy Sloan and made the American College Radio Top 20 charts, including a 3-week #1 position at KSYM in Texas. Both tracks appeared on Hello Mysterious in 2009 which was mastered by Sterling Sound prodigy, Ted Jensen (Keane, Fall Out Boy, Björk). A total of 3 singles received regional radio airplay in the U.K. from Aberdeen, Scotland to Bristol, England. Armed with 11 new tracks, the band now has all of Europe in their sights as they release their latest collection of work, The Happiness Struggle, due out on March 16, 2010. NRWO’s cross-over appeal has earned the group dozens of support slots for contemporary international heavyweights such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, One Republic, and John Mayer to cutting-edge modernists like Switchfoot, The Braver and, The Raveonettes. “One of the best young bands to emerge from America in years.” - Billy Sloan, Clyde Radio/Sunday Mail “NRWO could well become the name on everyone’s lips by the end of the year if they continue to put out music of this quality.” - Indie London “Florida foursome NRWO is the music industry’s best kept secret, until now that is.” - Elly Roberts, allgigs.co.uk “This Miami-based four-piece are seriously good.” - Johnny Dee, The First Post, London “It’s hard to not see that these guys own their genre.” - Stephanie Colaianni, Palm Beach Post “An indie sound that’s a cross between Jet and Blur...they’ve proven they can play in the big leagues” - Ashley Fantz, The Miami Herald Read more on Last.fm.
