Formed in 2008, The Orbans from Dallas/Fort Worth, TX have created a very unique style of pop music which hints at indie rock but also isn’t afraid to show a bit of twang.


With their debut full length album, When We Were Wild, released in June of 2010 and produced by Adam Lasus, The Orbans moved into 2011 with a firm answer for all of their efforts.

Recording "When We Were Wild" was an intense experience for The Orbans. The band first met Lasus when he helped mix a previous EP. After discussing the goals and expectations for the record, it was collectively decided to record the album live. They began looking at studios and found the perfect spot in Austin, Tx at Cedar Creek Recording. The large space allowed for the band to record and harness the band’s live energy.  From the pre-production days spent at a house around Lake Austin where the group also lived during recording to the playback of the first takes on tape at Cedar Creek, the entire team realized that something special was happening. The vibe and energy continued through the sessions at Cedar Creek and into Fireproof Recording, Adam's studio in Los Angeles. Nearing the end of what had been such an amazing time for both Adam and the band, it seemed like the obvious choice that they should title the record When We Were Wild.


The band is currently working on their follow up effort, but in the meantime they will continue to take their live show all over the country where they can spread the Orbans sounds with whoever will listen.  

The Orbans can certainly draw comparisons to bands like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Big Star, Dr Dog and Ryan Adams but more importantly have created a debut record that takes the listener on a personal and infectious sonic journey with Peter Black's wistful and heartfelt songs.
