Wild Sweet Orange

DATELINE - BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA:

Sometimes when I hear new music I know right away that things are headed in the right direction for the band. Wild Sweet Orange is just such a group. One listen to "The Whale" - the band's self-released 2007 EP and you can almost see the golden glow of a promising future. Besides showcasing a crisp, clean pop sound - the songs are structured in such a way that you can't help but feel they were written for you on the day you heard them. (As a music lover - I put it like this: the best songs are soundtrack to your life.) Wild Sweet Orange have impressed with their initial EP. Their new video for "Wrestle with God" is amazing. Their sound has earned them the right kind of attention. Their first full length album will be released this year on Canvasback Music (Columbia Records) and a February tour is planned!

The Video for "Wrestle with God"


The video was directed by Don Tyler, the Cleveland-based music video director best known for his combined use of live action and animation. Tyler has also done videos for Foreign Islands, Mason Proper, Mastodon, Ringworm, Midtown and Don the Reader, and recently directed a live-action trailer for an upcoming sequel to the popular video game “Obscure.”
