Review: Orchid Mantis - No One Else Around


It’s that time of year where it’s increasingly cold, rainy and wet outside. Autumn is on the edge of taking over and in the meantime, music such as, “No One Else Around” by Orchid Mantis is the perfect backdrop for these dreary days.

The dream-pop, shoegaze induced song is utterly dreamy and is a reminder of why I love music like this. From the guitar hooks that drone on with a tone of melancholy and reverb to the somewhat lonesome vocal melodies - I can’t help but love it all. From top to bottom, this song is completely gorgeous and makes me feel excited for the changing of seasons that awaits.
