Brighton alt-poppers Orchards have revealed their new single Double Vision!
Guitarist Sam Rushton says of the new track; “’Double Vision’ was the last song we finished for the record. And I guess we wrote it with the summer festivals in mind! Beers, sunshine and good times is the vibe we were going for. We wanted to create a party atmosphere in 3 and-a-half minutes, but also to have a deeper meaning behind the track, as we think it is a really effective juxtaposition. We all see it as our ‘pop banger’ and love playing this one live. It’s the perfect jumping tempo, so you can just have fun with it.”
Frontwoman Lucy Evers adds; “I have struggled with anxiety and depression for a while but was always so ashamed to talk about it. I felt less of a human for having a genuine chemical imbalance that was entirely out of my control. The lyrics for this song were the start of me accepting the truth and realising that I shouldn’t be afraid or feel alone. The lyrics almost refer to the two people living inside my head: the confident, independent woman who lets nothing weigh her down and the shy, introverted person who I am at my darkest moments. After losing a friend to their fight with depression I realised how important it is to talk about mental health. It‘s not something to be ashamed of nor feel like you need to hide.”
