The vocal work is especially effective on the album as vocalist Lucy Evers carves her way through each of the songs. Her voice just sucks you into the story or theme being displayed. There's a lot of experimentation here as well, besides the genre bending there's often times the guitars are tuned in a way that more resembles other instruments, the vocal work takes some interesting and unexpected turns as well such as in the song Drama King where it almost sounds as if Evers is off key but yet she manages to demonstrate a mastery of control of her voice.
Orchards are difficult to define, not quite pop punk, not quite mathrock, not quite indie rock, they lie somewhere in between. Their ability to pull from different styles, emotions, themes, and to make something all their own is commendable. The songs here are emotional, powerful, fun, groovy, and dripping with talent. Losers/Lovers is a short album that delivers just a taste of what the band has to offer but damn if that taste isn't sweet.
