The Orwells' Newest Single Is Two Songs In One

    On "Double Feature," Chicago garage rock band The Orwells give us the thumping drums and hypnotic bass lines they are known for. The track begins with these features, as well as gritty lyrics describing a rough living person from the "wrong side of the tracks" with a black Camaro, the same one depicted in the official single artwork parked outside of a wealthy suburban home. Throughout the song the narrator describes the man as someone who could have gone down a number of different paths and held a number of different professions had he experienced a different upbringing.

    In this way, the song feels thematically tied to the stories of tough men from tough backgrounds going down the wrong path that have been central to rock songs since the beginning of the genre, but were perhaps most expanded on in the early 80s by artists like Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. The Orwells clearly hearken back to this era in their music, but on the second half of this song, they go in a direction their forbearers wouldn't have dared, jamming out for another four minutes past the core of the song. In this way, the song earns its title and is a "Double Feature," one half conventional rock song and the other jam band experimentation. This song is the third single off of The Orwells upcoming album Terrible Human Beings, out on February 17th.
