Orphan Colours release their new single this Friday, and we have an exclusive stream for you here at AUK. When UK alt country outfit ahab went on indefinite hiatus, songwriter Steven Llewellyn decided to form his own band with the help of ahab originator Dave Burn and former bassist Graham Knight and hey presto Orphan Colours was born. Llewellyn told us:”High Hopes was written very quickly, within half an hour. It was one of those strange occasions where it just flowed out without having to think too much about it. It sounded great as soon as we played it together as a band and it’s been part of our live set ever since.” The song is the first track to be lifted from debut album ‘All On Red’ which is out 26th January 2018, and the band have also been selected to showcase at the Americana Music Association Festival in the new year. Now they just have to make a video for the song that’s worthy of its title.
