ORCHARDS announce debut album LOVECORE, hear new single 'Sincerely Overwhelmed' 2

Brighton quartet Orchards today announce details of their long-awaited debut album Lovecore, which will be released on 13th March via Big Scary Monsters. The band today also share their new single ‘Sincerely Overwhelmed’, a song that explores coming to terms with the fact you might not be handling difficult times as well as you think you are.

About their debut album, Orchards say: “It’s our statement, a flag in the ground letting people know we’re here and this is exactly what we’re all about. It’s the product of years of touring, meeting new people, hard times, good times, loss, friendships and growth. We’re starting a party and everyone’s invited”.

Listen to ‘Sincerely Overwhelmed’ – BELOW:

Lovecore is a lifetime in the making for Orchards, written crammed into drummer Will’s bedroom after working 9-6 days, on lunch breaks, on tour – in every spare second the band had. Their debut album is bursting with their signature Orchards sound, with a heavy focus on killer melodies and singer Lucy’s heartfelt poetic lyrical outpourings centred around her experience with loss, mental health struggles, the environment and relationships. To pre-order Lovecore and be in with the chance of winning one of 50 pairs of tickets to an exclusive release party (along with other goodies), head to www.bsmrocks.com.
