Orange County – Backwards

Orange County are already one of the best new talents to have emerged from the North East this year and when you realise that’s off the back of one solitary release that really is some achievement.

Currently a member of Sunderland band In Vibes, Shaun Cowell has launched his solo career under this new guise and ‘Backwards’ is a heck of an introduction.

His blend of melancholic pop has already earned him recognition from the likes of NME and with a debut EP arriving later this year, we simply can’t wait to hear more.
