Who Needs You which will see a September 10th release through East End/Canvasback Music, will be the second EP by the Chicago, IL-based quintet, the Orwells. EP title track, Who Needs You was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, and the song manages to be reminiscent of the intensely passionate garage rock that the Clash and the Ramones adored so much. Turn it up, and rock the hell out.
The quintet has already developed a reputation for a frenetic live show, and they’ll be joining Los Angeles, CA’s own FIDLAR on tour, starting in late September. The Orwells and FIDLAR will also be releasing a split 7" which they’ll be selling during their tour. And they’ll be making appearances at Lollapolooza, FYF Fest, and Austin City Limits.
The official video for “Who Needs You” has a very simple concept – the band playing in front of a projection but it gives you a sense of the frenetic and passionate energy of the band.
