Do you like DIY music? Beer? Karaoke? Then you’ve come to the right place. I recently sat down and had a fantastic chat with four-piece Manchester band Loose Articles in which we spoke about their debut EP, Orchid Lounge.
Named after their local karaoke bar, Orchid Lounge is a powerful debut that impresses me every time I listen to it. A concoction of drinking, gigging, feminism, humour, and anger, this is a must-hear record by an act who love what they do.
Luckily, I got to listen to the EP with the band. Throughout our conversation, the group provided fun anecdotes and interesting points of view. Thanks, Tim Burgess, you’ve created a whole new section of the internet in which music nerds can ask artists questions on the spot while making them listen to their own tunes, which they’ve no doubt heard hundreds of times. Check it out.
