Watch: Orchid Collective – Lay As Stone

Lay As Stone Press 2

When we shared the track two weeks ago we said ‘Lay As Stone’ by Dublin quartet Orchid Collective was “unwinding alt-folk meditation on weariness and reprieve that sees wonderfully-woven harmonies come to the fore across the track’s nigh on four minutes”. Having zig-zagged around the country playing shows in the time since, the band have released a video for the single directed by Cill Farrell, the moral of which we’ve deduced is: it’s often – if not always – advisable to drink a few glasses of milk before going on the rip.

Orchid Collective launch ‘Lay As Stone’ at Dublin’s Whelan’s on Friday night (March 11).
