Opus Orange has just released their incredible new single, Breaking Mirrors. Mixed by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, Sufjan Stevens, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Neko Case and more) and Masterd by Doug Van Sloun (Focus Mastering), Breaking Mirrors is a true indie-rock anthem. Directed by Bernard Chadwick (Loud Forest), the video puts the usually camera-shy frontman, PB, front and center. In Bernard’s own words, the video is “a poetic montage of what it feels like to try to break free from a certain kind of anxiety.” Watch the video below and make sure to like, comment, and share across all social media platforms.

Emoto featured artist Opus Orange will be releasing Equilibrium,a solo piano album recorded on a 1913 Knabe upright piano tomorrow, Tuesday May 12th. Equilibrium encompasses Spring: the lingering of Winter, the Vernal Equinox, the new life of flowers. It is reflection rather than expression. Texture and tone rather than melody and chords. It is an audible picture of the need to slow down and take time to observe nature changing.
Kotomi will be releasing a new song on the first Tuesday of every month this year! Keep up with her on Facebook and stay tuned!
Opus Orange’s newset music release will be available Tuesday, January 27th!
Emoto featured artist Opus Orange’s latest release “Outside In” was recorded entirely outside in the California wilderness above 10,000’ elevation. Using only solar power off the grid, they have reinvented their songs with washtubs and old BBQ grates for percussion, a washtub bass with a broom handle, and a variety of instruments found around camp including banjo, ukulele, melodica, and kalimba. Birds sing, insects buzz, and the wind whistles throughout these six songs – nature as an improvising musician.
Emoto composer and Opus Orange member Lauren Hillman aka Kotomi collaborated with Juno Award winner Ryan Hemsworth on a track for his sophomore album Alone For The First Time which will be released November 4th. The first song from the album can be heard now on Soundcloud and has already yielded over 800k plays.
Check out the promo video for his tour, which features their track ‘Surrounded’, below.
