JOSH ORANGE ‘MIDNIGHT LIGHTS’ ALBUM REVIEW

Josh Orange

Sydney based contemporary folk-rock act Josh Orange has just released Midnight Lights, the fourth album for the band.

Not only a satisfying array of life-affirming songs, Midnight Lights also confirms the band’s tenacity and unceasing creative spirit.

The new release features the band’s three AMRAP number #1 successes, I Will Follow You, When Tomorrow Comes and Midnight Lights. Entering the iTunes top 200 Australian singer-songwriter charts upon release, the new album was also Album of the Week on the ABC, Triple H and in the running for the spotlight on Good Morning Country in April.

The band also landed its first officially curated Spotify playlist, with Lost in the Woods attracting 300k plus spins. The new album’s closing track, the Three Worlds, was also recently added. And re-stating the band’s streaming success is the album’s opener Little Miss America, which has now scored over 54k Spotify streams and added to over 100 playlists.

The new album veers from folk-infused rock to country-tinged balladry, harnessing an accessible mixture of intimacy and universality. With subjects such as relationship challenges, intimacy, escapism, and societal observations explored, the album covers a lot of conceptual ground without ever losing its most vital elements: Gordon Burke’s nuanced and consummate vocal delivery, persuasive performances, and refined songwriting.

Whether it’s the Dylan, Dire Straits sounding appeal of Little Miss America or the reflective air of I Feel Love, Josh Orange has delivered a cohesive, hearty collection of tracks that contain sense of vulnerability and endurability.

Not only a satisfying array of life-affirming songs, Midnight Lights also confirms the band’s tenacity and unceasing creative spirit.

The band will be performing the album in its entirety at their first full live performance since COVID-19 at Sydney’s Leichhardt Bowlo on Saturday, May 8th. Tickets are limited and will be released on Monday, March 22nd – link to tickets here: https://leichhardtbowlingclub.com.au/gig-guide/
