Orca! Straight Ahead!

Orca! Straight Ahead! is a duo from Sydney who formed in 2009. It is made up of John Oddy (Guitars/Vocals) and John E.Q. (Drums/Percussion) Orca! Straight Ahead! is what happens when you get two people who cannot sing, don’t like anybody else enough to include them in the band and don’t think there is such a thing as a bad song.

So what results is a lot of talkbox, vocoder, auto-tune, loops, guest vocals and an eccentric collection of songs. Their debut EP “You Can’t Say We Didn’t Try” was released last year and is available on iTunes. It has been played on Triple J, FBI and 2SER radio and Work It Out was the number 1 most ordered electronic song on AirIt’s database in Sept & Oct 2010. Work It Out was also added to the playlist of many retail stores such as Jay Jays, Nike, Adidas and Glue. A music video for the song was released in January 2012. The video was also Indie Clip of the Week on Rage.

They have spent the past year gigging at venues such as the World Bar Kings X, Annandale Hotel, Lansdowne Hotel, Candy’s Apartment, Lewisham Hotel, Roxbury Hotel Glebe and various other venues around Sydney. The band has decided to put on their bedroom producer hats and undertake some DIY recording in the hope to produce some demos and explore new sounds. Earlier this year in January & February the band visited Brisbane and Melbourne and took the music to the streets by busking on tour. In other exciting news their new EP “We Tried And Failed” is due for release Sept 11. Look out for it!
