Certainly in recent times, The West Order may be the best thing to come out of Prestwick. The Scottish town just outside Glasgow doesn’t boast many riches, if any. But where it lacks in grandeur on the surface, it battle hardens the sedulous inhabitants, and, in turn, generates talent.
Proof of this lies within the young band, who have already turned heads with their debut release ‘Falling Down’, before taking reign of an opportunity to play at the legendary King Tuts Wah Wah, where the country’s best musicians blossom.
But unlike the bustling, fast-paced career they have already mustered after just two singles, ‘Girl Without A Name’ provides listeners with an insight to the slower side of the exciting four-piece’s sound.
When talking about the release, the band said: “..it’s a little bit different to our other tunes, it’s a bit softer in the verses with a light floaty guitar riff over an acoustic guitar which then smashes into a heavy chorus with loud guitars and tight drum fills...almost Nirvana-esque.”
Both this new single ‘Girl Without A Name’ and the aforementioned go hell for leather debut ‘Falling Down’ will appear on the band’s upcoming ‘All Is Mine’ EP out on May 26th. The quartet are also set to play a special hometown show at The Buf in Prestwick on June 3rd.
