Here is a new act for us here at CML. The Orchard are a Canadian duo. This is the first time I’ve heard them and we’ll be checking out their new song, Sometimes I Wonder, but be sure to check out more of their music on Spotify. It looks like they have been around for sometime and putting out music.
Let’s get into the new song…
Sometimes I Wonder – The Orchard
They have a cool sound. It appears to be a male and female duo. On this track we have the female vocals with the backing vocals in the song as well. It makes for a cool sound. We have a few acts like this in country including Sugarland, Thompson Square and Lady Antebellum. I would say that this one reminds me most of Thompson Square. That’s definitely a good thing.
But The Orchard definitely have their own sound as well. It’s a little more folksy. At least it is on this song.
From what I can tell the song is about life and the yearning to kind of get away. I think we have a person that is maybe feeling a little contained by where they are in life now. They’re looking back on the choices they’ve made and they’re wondering if they should have done things different. They’re wondering if they still can.
The more I listen to this one the more it kind of gets stuck in my head. The chorus is catchy and if you’re feeling that yearning feeling and curiosity about life then the lyrics should resonate.
