THE ORWELLS - THEY PUT A BODY IN THE BAYOU

This video pick is off The Orwells’s upcoming album Terrible Human Beings: “They Put a Body in the Bayou.”  It is their second single off the album so far, and their third official studio album.  “They Put a Body in the Bayou” is a video that may appeal to those keeping in touch with the current political climate.  It deals with the realities of modern politics and even the hypocrisy of it.  Lead singer Mario Cuomo takes the place of the loud, angry politician, getting the supporters literally frothing at the mouth.  

Hailing from Elmhurst, Illinois, The Orwells are cousins Mario Cuomo and Dominic Corso, twin brothers Grant and Henry Brinner, and Matt O’Keefe.  Friends for years, the band formed in 2009 and was signed to Autumn Tone records.  They have since toured with Arctic Monkeys, performed on Late Show with David Letterman, have had their song “Who Needs You” featured in a commercial for Apple and on the popular video game “Grand Theft Auto,” and other notable features and performances since their early graduation from high school in 2013.  Their upcoming album will be released on February 17th, 2017 by Atlantic Records.

The Orwells are currently on tour on the West coast this month, with dates culminating the month in the UK.
