EP 2014 DIY

With their ‘Nothing To Lose’ EP from 2012 the Belgium punk rock/power rock band Orange Apple made social criticism sound catchy, enjoyable and danceable. Still Influenced by the state the world is in Orange Apple keeps pushing sensitive buttons with their second EP ‘Generation Late’.

For instance: ‘We Are No Kings’ is about the overwhelming force of nature and the destruction it can cause, inspired by the 2011 Pukkelpop drama. They even released a video for this song with footage from the festival when it was hit by a disastrous storm. In the Title track ‘Generation Late’ it seems that the spirit of the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations and its report peeps through. Back then they defined that “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” That is what comes to mind when I here the lyrics: “we are the generation late, we are the ones who pay for all off your mistakes”.

So going further on the path of socio-criticism that they started with ‘Nothing To Lose’, Orange Apple again released a damn fine EP. 9/10

1. Hurrican Of Faith
2. We Are No Kings
3. Where Are We Now
