SINGLE REVIEW: I Will Follow You by Josh Orange

Josh Orange already has several albums under their belt including Songs for the Journey, Big Day Tomorrow and Eyes Wide Open and is proud to have won a rock category prize in 2015’s The Great American Song Contest. Their new track I Will Follow You follows Little Miss America, a song that received a great amount of attention across all streaming platforms and remained in the top 10 Amrap Metro charts for seven weeks through June, July & August 2020. Their latest is a heart-felt folk rock song that blends memorable melodies, an impassioned lead vocal and a stirring lyric to explore themes of family, responsibility and self-identity. The new song is taken from the forthcoming album Midnight Lights. Josh Orange, whose members are Gordon Burke (vocals/acoustic/keys), Andrew Wass (guitars/vocals), Blaine Munnings (bass guitar), Alex Miller (drums) and Shane McLaughlin (guitars) is from Glebe in Sydney’s west and I Will Follow You is sure to be the track that expands the band’s ever-growing fan base. As Irish singer/songwriter of the band Gordon Burke explains: ‘The song captures the family cycle from a father to his son, from generation to generation, and the tough decisions that can face a farmer in deciding what’s best for his children. There are also the family emotions around who stays and who goes as part of the cycle of farming in any country. The song is about farming and the way its traditions impacts families anywhere in the world’. Featuring a gently pulsing feel, earthy organic instrumentation and poignancy that’s as alluring as it is disarming I Will Follow You is a timeless sounding track that blends traditional folk-country elements with contemporary ones beautifully and with restraint and subtle charm. As the band says of its creative process: ‘We love what we do, we are a gang of brothers that are all fighting for the same goal – great songs. The live show is where we shine the most: it’s unpredictable, it’s always a huge buzz and we look forward to taking the new album on to a stage soon’. I Will Follow You is sure to be the break-out song Josh Orange.
