Although Wild Lovely Orange flaunt the united states influences that one might expect to get a band from Birmingham, AL, the bandmates also list David Lynch alongside Emmylou Harris as pillars of their group’s sound. The noisily experimental tendencies of Yankee Resort Foxtrot-era Wilco as well as the navel-gazing angst of the generation of Shiny Eyes disciples each is also exposed in Wild Lovely Orange’s nervy (but completely available) music. The primary members from the music group — major songwriter Preston Lovinggood, bassist Garret Kelly, and drummer Chip Kilpatrick — was raised collectively in the suburbs of Birmingham, having performed together in rings since elementary college. After Lovinggood lowered out of university, the trio added guitarists Matt Parsons and Taylor Shaw to create Wild Lovely Orange, evidently swiping the name from a make of tea. (Shaw and Kilpatrick also taken care of a far more traditional part project, the fantastic Publication of John, as an wall socket for Shaw’s songwriting and vocals.) Managers Tim Dwyer and Ken Glanton authorized Wild Lovely Orange with their recently created Earfood Information label in 2005; the label’s first launch was Wild Lovely Orange’s Home of Repent EP in early 2006. The band’s full-length debut, WE’VE Reason to be Uneasy, premiered in nov the same yr and featured creation from Spoon’s Mike McCarthy.
