There’s a new collaborative project on the block between London and Brighton as Bruised Orange share their debut single ‘So It Goes’.
The quartet, Thomas Curtis-Horsfall (vocals), Alexander Waterson (guitar), James Erskine (guitar) and Josh Cook (bass) take their name from John Prine’s 1978 album of the same title as they draw in a range of 60’s and 70’s psychedelic influences.
‘So It Goes’ is one extensive long-jam, the melody is chilled out and dreamy whilst the guitar chords are hit with a sense of pride and passion.
Speaking about the track, they said: “I prefer to write lyrics and create stories from specific moments or memories I’ve experienced in my own life, and in that respect, I guess it’s incredibly introspective.
“Still, I think people can still associate with the lyrics whether or not they consider it an ode to a previous relationship, or an internal struggle that is relatable. I guess in that respect, I’m influenced by Neil Young in particular.”
Expect more from Bruised Orange as their debut EP is slated for release later in the year.
