Single Review
Orson - Bright IdeaOrson - Bright Idea

Following the hugely popular single “No Tomorrow,” Orson are here once more with a new song, the title track of their album; Bright Idea.

Fans of the previous single, brimming with indiness, may be divided over the new addition to Orson's venture into the world of music.

It isn't as indie for starters, and has the qualities of a far more generic alternative rock track. Yet still, the similarities are clear between both tracks. Perhaps it's just the same guitar sounds and use of “twinkly instruments,” for lack of a better phrase.

But hold your horses! It's not all doom and gloom. The song is well written, and the chorus is definitely catchy. It's a good song in all fairness, and you can't criticise a band for using some things twice, if it's part of a formula that has seemingly gone down a treat in earlier usage.

Orson to me, seem like a breath of fresh air from all the bands that are popping up and sounding like each other, and I'm hoping that their success continues beyond this early stage. Most definitely a band to keep your eyes on.
