Having lived everywhere from Portland to Bellingham and now residing in Seattle, ORCA TEAM are bastard children of the Northwest. Leif Anders sings longingly for a lost ideal over a driving, melodic bass line. Jessica B. plucks notes drenched in reverb on her guitar. And with a stiff lip, Dwayne holds a steady beat on a muted drum set. They make the music of a punk trio if everyone in the band decided to keep their volume low and their tones clean. Bathed in cold waters, surrounded by pine trees and with only a few glimpses of sunlight, ORCA TEAM’S sound is described as “Cold Surf”.
