Indie Montreal‘s IMTL Press is pleased to announce the new single from ORCHAD, “Critically Ashamed” is premiering on Montreal Rocks before its official release to all platforms on July 31, 2020. 

ORCHAD (pronounced OR-CHID) – the Montreal-based band that formed in 2018 – brings a good dose of adrenaline to alternative rock while deviating from the genre’s codes. What makes their sound so impressive is that its a full-band ruckus delivered by just a pair of musicians – singer Julian Della and guitarist Justyn Vynn. The duo is a force to be reckoned with on stage and manages to create music with a unique sound that immediately makes you want to turn up the volume and dance.

Strongly influenced by the music of the 2000s such as My Chemical Romance and Billy Talent, ORCHAD offers timeless rock with a touch of freshness and modernity. 

Filmed in HideSeek Pop-Up Shop, “Critically Ashamed” is a satire on the use of social media as a measure for success. Lifestyles are dictated by social networks and the majority of the their content intended to feign accomplishment and to highlight a life that seems to be perfect. As a band, the duo wants to stay true to themselves and not distill their value as humans down to social influence.
