30 May 2020

What can I say? British flamboyant group THE MIGHTY ORCHID KING have a new single out and it’s as their previous pieces a glorious score. SWIRLING is a solid gold glam banger with T.Rex echoes. A sixties influenced psych-rock gem. A spot-on shake and sway corker! Expect a king-sized beat, bright harmonies, towering guitars and a punchy drive. Huzzah!

Get it on, here come the 21st Century boys…
