Hear This: Orchid Collective - Otherside


Share This Article:

The era of pop rock has never been better for upcoming bands, and when executed well, can transform a band from zero to hero immediately.

This is Orchid Collective’s journey: after gaining recognition with a 57-date tour across Ireland in 2017, they landed their first UK performance at Y NOT festival and secured support from BBC Radio 1 & Radio 6, Hot Press and CLASH. David O‘Shea (lead vocals, guitar), Shea Tohill (lead guitar, vocals), Hugh O’Neill (bass, vocals) and Darra Doyle (drums, vocals) each hail from different partsof Ireland, but all share one passion for creating great pop rock that is perfect up-beat festival music.

The quartet states that their influences hail from all genres of music, but 'Otherside' is a harmonious, pop rock tune with a great melody and soft vocals, great to sing along to. It’s a Summer track, but memorable enough to have “see you on the otherside” whir round your head for a while after. The track is more powerful than their previous work as acoustic musicians (similar to Daughter) and have placed them on the map for the nicest kind of upbeat music to be heard at any festival.
