Dr Orange is the solo venture of Liverpool songwriter Chas Moody, formerly of the 60’s inspired band Ladies. His debut single Comes In Threes is a slice of psych rock perfection which blends heavy riffs with spacey synth overtones.
Originally planned for a July release accompanied by a string of UK shows the uncertain nature of 2020 has led to a cancellation of planned shows and a fast-tracked release.Dr Orange is Chas’s first solo project and his first public musical output in 18 months. In this time Chas has developed and matured as a songwriter and has recorded 2 further singles to be released in 2020. Dr Orange is comprised of Chas, Ryan Lavery (Bobby West) and Sam Burkett (The JJohns).
The song will have you nodding your head along to the mantra ‘It Comes In Threes’ with hints at influences of the likes of The Black Keys and Miles Kane along the way too. Overall the track keeps things simple, it’s all about the message in the song. It feels like a song that wouldn’t be out of place in the 60’s psych rock scene.
Dr Orange said “Comes in Threes is one of the rare times you write a 3 minute song in 3 minutes. Usually when I’ve tried to take my music in a certain direction my subconscious has answered by writing every style of song other than the one I want to. This tune, however, dropped out of nowhere and was on the money. Roughly speaking the songs about mental health and some of the patterns and rules I’ve come to realise I follow”.
Comes In Threes is out now on all streaming platforms.
