The Orwells @ CMJ 2012 by Clayton Carr


Just in case you din’t get to see them rip it up at CMJ 2012, young Chicago upstarts the Orwells will hit the road this autumn with FIDLAR. Expect to hear some new tunes, too, as their EP, Other Voices, will be released June 25 on East End/Canvasback. You can watch the probably very sweaty video for the Dave Sitek-produced love song/not-really-a-love song Other Cities, below. And don’t forget to check out the tour dates: there are 26 of them.
