The Orwells – "Who Needs You"

Rock ‘n’ roll has always been about the kids, and The Orwells make that quite literally apparent: they’re a couple of 16, 17, and 18-year-olds from Elmhurst, Illinois that are making some of the loudest, scuzziest, and most enjoyable punk slopped rock ‘n’ roll of 2012. The majority of The Orwells may not even be old enough to enlist or get drafted into the armed forces, but their newest single, the unreleased “Who Needs You,” is an impressive and poignant look at war and patriotic service from a disillusioned post-9/11 generation. “Listen up forefathers, I’m not your son,” sings Mario Cuomo over a bed of handclaps and guitar riffage. “You better count your blessings, you better pass the flask. You better join the army. I said, ‘No thank you, dear old Uncle Sam.’” It’s a refreshingly clear approach to songwriting, considering the abundance of vague reverb-shrouded lyrics the majority of modern independent artists dish out. Clearly, these youngsters are worth keeping a sharp eye on. Word is the band recently signed with Autumn Tone, the imprint from Aquarium Drunkard godfather, Justin Gage.
