Orchin is the noise/dream pop project of Jeremy McLennan, a multi-instrumentalist raised both in Australia and Los Angeles who combines murky, reverbed guitars with the more overcast dreamscapes of 4AD. McLennan's darker pop confections come into full force on his new single "Ego Deathbed", where we're introduced to his lamenting sigh before he lets out an uncompromising assault of cavernous distortion. It's a potent, if sightly isolated, track that gives us some insight into McLennan's psychological relief.
"Ego Deathbed" is the first single from their debut self-titled EP, to be released on March 17. - Juan Rodríguez
