Orchid Mantis – “Yellow House”


Orchid Mantis impresses again with the alluring track “Yellow House.” The release follows the excellent “Porch Song” last month. “Yellow House” succeeds on bouncy keys, twangy guitars, and an overall dreamy haze. The track shifts into second gear at 01:51, when the guitar work and hypnotic keys assumes a very Beach House-esque glow. Like all Orchid Mantis tracks to date, there’s a consuming, mesmerizing quality in both the soundscape and melody, making for a very memorable listen.

“Yellow House” is off Orchid Mantis’ forthcoming full-length of the same name, releasing on 11/11.

“Yellow House” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2018’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Shoegaze / Post-Punk / Dream-Pop.
