Orsome Welles have released a video for their new track Father’s Eyes exclusively with Prog.

The song features on the Melbourne outfit’s upcoming Rise EP, which will launch on May 26.

The video sees the band take on the guise of a team of woodsmen under the oppression of a ringleader, who ultimately turn on their boss.

Orsome Welles frontman Michael Stowers tells Prog: “Father’s Eyes is a powerful and punchy exploration of patriarchal loyalty and freedom.

“I always have an overwhelming feeling of hazardous abandonment whilst singing this song – kind of like watching a young bird take flight for the first time.

“I love the rapid undulations blended with authoritative flow that underpin the music.’’

The five-track Rise EP is now available for pre-order. Orsome Welles have several Australian dates lined up this summer. Find the list along with the Rise cover art and tracklist below.
