With The Orphins, one is always guaranteed rhythmic and chanty songs with imaginative lyrics.

The Orphins indulge in euphoric melodies, epic lyrics and popping beats while preserving the rough, authentic, and endearing sound they honed while playing Atlanta's DIY house show scene throughout the 2000s. This valuable tension persists in 2009 as they play in some of Atlanta's most respected indie venues.

After five years, The Orphins have released their second full-length album, Wish You Well. All of the qualities that made Drowning Cupid such a gem are immediately present after the bright and crashing start of "Heart Equation," Wish You Well's opening track.

In many ways Wish You Well is a thematic and aural conclusion to 2004's Drowning Cupid, but as a stand alone album it's both playful and polished. Long-time fans will find listening experience to be much like wearing an old smoking jacket: stylish, comfortable, familiar. First-timers will most likely question why they haven't been listening to The Orphins for ages.

Tracks like "Wish You Well" and "Lost in the Wild" demonstrate The Orphins' ability to create and exploit the tensions between their lyrics and their sound. The album is refreshingly evocative of their live experience. Guitarists and vocalists Thomas Barnwell and Daniel Upton trade riffs and find delicate harmonies, while bassist Jen Upton and drummer Max McDonough serve up effervescent rhythms. No matter which aspect you focus on, you are guaranteed to like something about Wish You Well.
