Orchestra Of Spheres have released a stream of their track Anklung Song with Prog.

It’s taken from the New Zealand outfit’s upcoming album Brothers And Sisters Of The Black Lagoon, out on May 13.

The band report the album was inspired by the 2015 general election in their homeland, saying it was a “somewhat depressing time.”

They continue: “The politicians had been rooting around in shit again. It was bad politics, dirty politics. Big, fat Dotcom tried to sabotage the show. It backfired. It was weird, corrupt, boring and sleazy in equal measures. Ultimately the status quo prevailed.”

They add: “We’re not a political band. We want to make beautiful things and give love to people through sound. Our music bounces off the ground and goes up into the air – but we’re living in dark times.”

Orchestra Of Spheres will head out on the road across Europe next month.
