Founded in Dunedin and now based in New Plymouth, Mild Orange have been quietly been making big waves. 2020’s self-titled album and 2018’s Foreplay have garnered millions of streams so far, attracting capacity crowds for their hugely popular local shows and international festival appearances on the same bill as The Strokes and Underworld. Not content to rest on their laurels, the team of Josh Mehrtens, Josh Reid, Tom Kelk and Jack Ferguson look forward to good times ahead with their brand new single ‘Getting Warmer‘, featuring guest raps from B. (aka Bena Simanu), who also contributed to Foreplay. A graceful intersection of hip hop grooves and almost Hawaiian-esque guitar strumming, B.’s contemplative flow and Mehrtens’ wistfully soulful vocals conjure maximum chilled out vibes, complemented by hints of lofi crackle — check out the visualiser vid here and hit play on the stream below…
‘Getting Warmer (feat. B.)’ is out now via Spotify and Apple.
