Orpheum Bell have become our favourite ‘Country & Eastern’ artists! They deftly and elegantly mix classic Americana with gypsy rhythms plucked from travelling carnivals and vaudeville sideshows to create something that is in equal parts melancholic, seductive and sometimes a little bit dangerous.
We’ve already posted two tracks from their latest album The Old Sisters’ Home and here is a third, the ukelele led Whatever Shines So Bright is a cautionary tale of temptation featuring the playful duet between Katie Lee’s high lonesome soprano and Aaron Klein’s seductively gruff voice.
The Old Sisters’ Home is out on May 8th.
