oreglo’s ‘Not Real People’ EP Is A Genre-Crushing Experience

Out now on Brownswood Recordings...

London group oreglo have shared their debut EP ‘Not Real People’ in full.

The band are a glorious, genre-crushing experience, melting together rock riffs, club tropes, and jazz improvisation. A real assault on the sense, oreglo are capable of moving from reggae to nu-metal in a stroke, while somehow making the result brew come together with perfect unity.

A series of excellent singles have paved the way, with oreglo darting from sound to sound, influence to influence. Recent cut ‘comet’ saw them unite with Bel Cobain, but there are refreshing few features on the EP as a whole – this is very much 100% distilled oreglo.

Rooted in London but embracing all manner of sounds and experiences, the EP is out now on Brownswood Recordings. oreglo comment…

‘Not Real People’ is a representation of our collective experiences as young people in London. It takes inspiration from all the sounds and people we have grown up with, from rock anthems to a steppers bounce; it tackles themes of alienation in an endlessly changing city as well as the realisation of identity that forms as we traverse through adolescence.

Tune in now.

Catch oreglo at London’s the Lower Third on September 18th.
