Fresh off signing on with Autumn Tone Records, Chicago blues rock outfit made a splash at their debut tonight with a roughly 45-minute set for a house party in the Beverly Glen area. strong presence, and, despite being considerably younger than every single person in the crowd, wasn’t even the slightest bit intimidated or apprehensive about getting up in some faces (in fact, he may’ve even slightly intimidated a few folks himself) or getting down on knees-and-elbows to embrace the patio bricks. All in all, this was quite the memorable backyard gathering and, despite the fairly rudimentary living room set up, offered up a fierce display that made this band’s potential star power self-evident to all in attendance.

The Orwells play next Saturday at The Echo. Keep tabs on these kids and check the videos and photo gallery below.

From Artist Page on the Autumn Tone Records site:

The ORWELLS are made up of five seventeen year olds from Chicago, Illinois. They play rock n roll music. Their names are Mario, Grant, Henry, Dominick and Matt. They write songs — scratch that, primitive teenage battle cries — about girls and America and being suspended from high school. Although one might categorize The Orwell’s distinct brand of the blues as garage or punk, they would be wrong. sound comes from a deeper, different place. A place both long forgotten and also timeless. Their first LP, “Remember When” comes out this summer on Autumn Tone Records. Be the first on your block to snatch it up.
