Mad Orange Fireworks takes a new route to launch their second album
One of the most prominent bands in the Bengaluru indie music scene, Mad Orange Fireworks has shown a lot of heart in their four years of existencea��be it in their live performances or studio recordings. They will take their brand of Orange Rock (a blend of rock, funk, jazz, pop and blues) a step further tomorrow, with the launch of their long-overdue second album, Under The Orange Sky. When most indie bands today release their albums digitally, the trio will be releasing theirs in a matchbox. Yes, you read that right. Michael Anthony Dias, the 27-year-old frontman, explains, a�?People who buy the album will get a matchbox containing a download code. They can then visit our website, madorangefireworks.com, and download it.a�? The banda��with Dias on vocals, Kaushik Kumar on bass and Deepak Raghu on drumsa��will also launch the album with a performance at Bengalurua��s The Humming Tree. Under The Orange Sky will see the banda��s signature sound getting heavier and darker. A good example would be two singles released earlier this year, Nothing Left To Mend and Shaking My Ground. Dias attributes the change to fresh influences. a�?I was listening to Pearl Jam when I was writing most of the songs. So, heavy grunge was a great influence,a�? he says. After the launch, Mad Orange Fireworks will be seen at the NH7 Weekender.
Tomorrow, at The Humming Tree, Bengaluru. Details: 9886618386
