Pleased to Meet You: Pressed Orchid
Let’s face it, you don’t get to listen to all the bands you should, so when a friend sends someone your way, you should always listen…that’s how I came across Richmond’s Pressed Orchid. Their musical style is this very subtle bedroom pop, but they build in these little textural notes that bubble to the top and elevate their sound, such as the saxophone or the chirping of birds present in the video below. Sarita’s vocals move between this ethereal realm and this angelic playfulness that rewards the listener time and time again. If you dig what you’re hearing, the duo will be releasing Velvet Confessional on via Brilliant Corners Records later this year.
