Bucurestenii de la Orkid vor concerta pe 19 Octombie in Club Underworld.
The psycho-killer whales are heading to this sweet, witty and energetic punk venue we all love.
And they can’t wait to bring their rock’n’roll to our local & fresh CBGB.
“A crazy bunch of angry shoegazers that decided to go by the name of Orkid, inspired by punk, blues and progressive guitar music. They have released their first album in October 2016, available here orkid4.bandcamp.com.
The nine tracks that are included on the album are based on 30 years of sensations, ideas, emotions, stories and experiments that Vlad gathered since his first musical experiences – childhood violin & guitar lessons, but also very loud music through the headphones of the most precious thing he owned as a kid, a green Aiwa walkman. Orkid is a cinematic music project, due to the fact that
Vlad is a film director and screenwriter and Radu (the other founding member of the band)– an animator and visual artist, also responsible for the imagery of the band. They also work together for Animest www.animest.ro and its educational platform, the Animation Worksheep.
Radu is the stomping whale. The keeper of the whales demented tempos. Being a visual artist and animator he is the one responsible for the imagery of the band. Also one of the founding members of Orkid.
George is our elder, our “Baciu”(though just 7 weeks older than Vlad). He is the peacemaker & the pacemaker, the wise guy, the one that brings us confort and serenity. Also he is our first experienced musician, making the low frequency armonies of our band sound just as good as the whale sounds.
Donny is the ace in the whale’s sleeve. Building fantastic beasty instruments and making them sound just fantastic: Jouhikko/Talharpa, Tibetan Bowls, Wind Gong, Didgeridoo, Claves, Rattles, Shaman Drum. He also paints and does an amazing amount of things in the real life. And keeps the track of our gigs/deals and crazy spendings.
Sebastian is our most experienced brother. His trumpet seems to be a metallic extension of his mind and soul, making just the perfect sounds. He is the academic, yet emotional & powerful groove of our gang, also creating electronic beats and droning sounds on his machines to complete the orkids cries.
Vlad is always the one who shouts. During the gigs, the rehearsals and everything else. He seems immensely proud (and forever happy) of beeing the Howling Whale.
These Psycho-Killer Whales are on a continuous and neverending quest for improving the means of communication between whales, humans and extraterrestrial life forms.”
