In a way, the phrase 'depressing beauty' is an apt one to tag the wistful, occasional adventures of The Orange Humble Band.
Formed by Australian songwriter Daryl Mather, the project's output has attracted enormous devotion from some of the most acclaimed songwriters in the game.
New album 'Depressing Beauty' will be released on July 4th, and features Mather working alongside Ken Stringfellow (Posies), Jon Auer (Posies, Big Star), and R.E.M. associate Mitch Easter among others.
A glorious return, Clash is able to trail new track 'The Girl Without A Name'. Pristine power pop, the lush strings are set against powerful, searching vocals - classic fare, but all the better for it.
