Where You Are by Orchid Mantis

Where You Are (Feat. Josh Augustin) by Orchid Mantis

I have really enjoyed this track. Very smooth keys and the lull in the kit takes the track to another level. Thomas Howard, the person behind Orchid Mantis has produced another fantastic track to build on his already eclectic shoegaze repertoire.

There is such melancholy and a pronounced sadness in the track that will leave the most hip listener a little bit slower than when started.

“Where You Are started as a demo written on a Casio sampling keyboard and a Univox SR-55 drum machine. It’s the first Orchid Mantis song to feature another artist – that’s always been hard to picture with how improvisational my recording process has been in the past. In this case though, things really happened to come together just right. Early on I recognized that Josh’s voice felt like a natural fit, and the arrangement was loose enough that I could accommodate another perspective stepping in.”
