Dr Orange: W.C.B.T. – single reviewDr Orange: W.C.B.T.


Out now

Dr Orange returns with new single W.C.B.T, another great dose of hazy slacker lo-fi.

Back in February, we covered Dr Orange’s wonderful slab of lo-fi on his single Chinatown. It’s great to hear him building on the sound on his new song, W.C.B.T.

Rising out of warped cymbals, it quickly crashes in with a scuzzy glam stomp, grooving along on a spaced-out rhythm that sits somewhere between Jack White and The Dandy Warhols. It oozes from the speakers, sirens wailing from beneath as the music forms a psych-blues haze beneath.

On the song, he says: “W.C.B.T started off as a little jangly pop song that I wrote and recorded a while back”, explains Dr Orange. “It was only actually when I was listening back to it months later that I decided to add the big riff, making that the focal point of the song. I feel like It’s definitely got similarities to my debut single in terms of its intensity and ballsiness, and it’s without a doubt one of my favourites to play live.”

The fruits of his labour are coming forth and we can’t wait to hear what he achieves over a full album. Time will tell.

Listen to the song below.
