OoS Europe

Wellington based Avant Trance rockers Orchestra of Spheres are on a roll at the moment and left Wellington last week for a month long tour of Europe to promote their new record Brothers and Sisters of the Black Lagoon. The album has been released worldwide on both CD and vinyl by London based Fire Records, who seem to be doing a great job of promotion, getting the band featured as the Guardian Weekly’s Band of the Week….

….and getting the track Walking Through Walls featured on The Wire’s Adventures In Music and Sound, broadcast and podcast by Londons Resonance FM. For those interested the track can be heard about 16m in.

It will be interesting to hear back just how the band’s biscuit tin guitar, sexomouse marimba and electric bass carillon, all homemade instruments created from found objects, are received in countries like Turkey, Portugal and Spain and we will endeavour to feature an interview in a few weeks’ time.
