WRITING ON THE WALL
Somebody’s Music ★★★
U.S. Style British trip keep the music in the family
Orfila is the family name of a group of musical British siblings; Matt (vocals, guitar, harmonica, banjo) Louise (vocals, guitar) and Abi (vocals, piano) The eleven tracks were all written by the trio and recorded and produced in Kent and Birmingham.
Still relatively new to the music scene, having debuted in 2012, their lyrics, sound, vocals and impressive harmonies would suggest they have been around for much longer.
Standout tracks perhaps include, ballads such as Draw a Line and Be Mine, along with the more upbeat I’m a Train and the somewhat unexpected but very effective cover of The Beatles I’ve Just Seen A Face.
Combining folk, country and pop sounds, they have been compared to bands such asTheCorrs. I lookforward to seeing if such a musical journey awaits them. Helen Mitchell
