Just Watch: Blaenavon – Orthodox Man


Words: Rebecca Mason

blaenavonFollowing the announcement of their debut album That’s Your Lot, Blaenavon have unveiled a beautiful alternate version of lead single Orthodox Man. Recorded in bassist Frank Wright’s bedroom, the track is taken from the album’s companion, Bedroom Tapes which features alternate versions of the album’s twelve tracks.
Blaenavon are no strangers to acoustic tracks, however Orthodox Man is more upbeat than previous songs, nevertheless still showing off Ben Gregory’s stunning voice. This version of the single is soothing and relaxing, the perfect addition to any chilled playlist.
The band have a huge year ahead of them, with an upcoming headline tour and support slots for Sundara Karma and Two Door Cinema Club’s European tour, 2017 is sure to be the year we see Blaenavon’s full potential.
