The Orchids-GOOD TO BE A STRANGER (2007)

"A blissful mix of the best Scottish bands of the last few years"

The enigmatic five piece band formed in Glasgow have released some of the finest pop songs of their generation since humble beginnings in Penilee, a suburb of the city, where the three founder members grew up and started the band in 1986.

Their first six singles and three albums were met with widespread critical acclaim, much of this from out-with the UK. 'They brought together all the best parts of the 90's Scottish music scene, while adding something that's hard to pin down, yet made them so very special' Uncut exclaim! 'The best Scottish pop band since Orange Juice' Melody Maker.
