There are multiple bands by the name of Orchards. A metallic hardcore band from London, UK, playing crushing metallic hardcore in the vein of Converge One is is a lo-fi electronic/indie project from Portland, Oregon. From Orchards' website: 'this music will never compare with the lovely, soft patter of falling rain. it can only vaguely suggest the forms of passing emotional states and thoughts, digitally crystalized into nostalgic, upbeat pop collages, dance hymns, and reveries.' Another hails from the UK: From the fertile ground of Nottingham's bountiful music scene grew Orchards. The group yields fruit in the shape of sweet, crunchy melodies married to bitesize narratives for your listening pleasure. Indeed, the french name for Orchards is "pommes pour l'oreille". And their raison d'etre? Simply to sing, plonk, bash, strum and bow through said nutritious nuggets. This humble assembly of musicians currently / have previously graced such fine groups as Saint Joan, Jones of Colorado, Sweetbriar, The Nordic Mile, The Grave Architects and the Sexcapades of Dan Diego. One member also once had the privilege of joining the Chemistry Experiment on stage in Bath. Something lead him to lean over and bite the top of the keyboard player's head. Relations between the two groups remain amicable despite this infringement.
