Orange Television / Press

“The group's eclectic playing style keeps audiences on their feet”

“紛れも無く正統派ロックが基盤でありながら、彼らのサウンドや楽曲の展開などからも、70年代のPink Floydに代表されるロック・オペラやジャム・バンドの要素を継承しているのが良く分かる。このロック・ジャム系のジャンルというものは米国では特に大学生などの若者層で人気を得ることが多く、OTVがカレッジ・タウンとして知られるアムハーストを基盤として熱狂的なファンベースを持っていることにも肯ける。ヴォーカルでリードギターのHowieは広い声域と奥深さのある声質、そして彼独特のダークな存在感を持ち合わせており、まさにRoger WatersとDavid Gilmourを融合させた存在といったところだろうか。またPink Floydがそうだったように、サイケやプログレといったジャンル特有の自由奔放な楽曲の展開を好みつつも、メロディ性をしっか”

“Playing their own original songs as well as a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” they swayed the audience into a frenzy of dancing. They were the perfect opening band for The Breakfast, lulling the audience into a wonderful trance of funk-filled bliss.”

““Thanks for comin’ out in the rain,” said Howie Feibusch, lead singer and guitarist of the University of Massachusetts’ own Orange Television. The crowd answered with a roar as they exploded into their second song of the opening set, “Slaves with Neon Blood.””

“Orange Television is a band with the kind of spark that gets your head bobbing and feet tapping the instant they start playing.”

"Among the scores of bands on hundreds of campuses across the country, Orange Television sets itself apart with a blend of rock and funk that approaches the better qualities of progressive rock, no sweeping majestic compositions just hard rocking tunes with proficient and intricate playing."
