John Sailors Saw these guys open for Trivium and were pleasantly surprised. After the show found their music on their website and have since become a huge fan of these guys. Hope to catch you guys again at a live show soon. Also looking forward to more new music...Swim is constantly on repeat on my devices and I've even got my cousin in the U.S. hooked on you guys.

Paul M Very melodic. Starts out calm and soft but then shifts mid song into the more familiar prog rock sonics you come to expect from this band. Shows a nice maturity that they are willing to continue to experiment and push their sound.

Swim is the latest track to emerge from the Orsome Welles camp. A different shape and texture with a heat that makes you sweat ; Hear it here first!


The heat grabs you by the neck.
Hot breath in your chest desperate to survive.
The drums bang a hopeful beat ; pick up and move out.
Only the tough are alive.
Wipe over the sweat beads crown, it dampens your clothes when the sounds of the town are background.
The truth quick will wash away, with the dream as your guide, you will hold on a burn deep inside.

Into the ocean you dive and swim to me.
Out of the sun in the sky you try to leave
Carry the proof that you tried, it must exist.
In the blue ocean you'll thrive so swim to me.

To stand is to want to leave.
Assess your fate, pausing and then walk away.
The leaves crunchy underfoot the wind at your back joins the cracked concretes dodgy terrain.
It's steep and effort to shoulder the weight and it's taking its toll on you now.
The rain it will wash away, when the change hits town, the whole world is turned upside down.

Float like a feather ; drift like debris.
Changing weather ; storm guarantee.
Forward together ; flaming tree.
Stronger than ever ; raging sea.
