Showcasing //orangenoise with Ufone Uth Records 2.0 Episode Six!

[Pakistan – 27th March 2012]: Following the creative artist Sara Haider, Ufone Uth Records 2.0 is set to showcase the talents of the band //orangenoise, with the platform’s sixth episode on the 31st of March 2012.

The Karachi based band //orangenoise features four talented musicians: Daniel Arthur Panjwaneey on bass and vocals, Danial Hyatt on drums, Faizan Riedinger on synths and guitar with vocals and guitar by Talha Asim Wynne. The four musicians came together in the summer of 2010 to form //Orangenoise and haven’t looked back since. Having performed regularly in the city of Karachi within the underground music scene, their popularity has been on a steady rise. The four band members come from varied musical backgrounds: Daniel Arthur previously played for a thrash band called Messiah, Talha has had experience of jamming in live shows while Faizan and Danial Hyatt are both also part of the band Mole. The band has been inspired by musicians and bands such as Tool, Porcupine Tree, Billy Sheehan, Boards of Canada and Pink Floyd, to name just a select few. Courtesy of Ufone Uth Records, they now have a platform to express their own brand of music to the nation – ‘chappalgazers’ – as they call it themselves.

At Ufone Uth Records 2.0, //orangenoise will be performing ‘Chaser’. On the inspiration behind the song //Orangenoise said “social situations are the biggest inspiration behind the song’s lyrics.” With Chaser, they aim to highlight superficiality in society today and how the gap between one’s pretensions and one’s inner self is constantly widening. Chaser is the band’s original composition and they have worked on it with one of Pakistan’s biggest drumming icons’ and music producer, Louis J Pinto aka Gumby. When the lead vocalist, Talha was asked about his expectations of Ufone Uth Records 2.0, he stated that he expected, “open mindedness to all sorts of music and spreading that open mindedness.”

Ufone Chief Marketing Officer Akbar Khan said; “//orangenoise is a different youth band in so many ways – their music is different, their attitudes unique and what is exceptionally astonishing is perhaps the maturity they have as musicians and in their musical sound. We are proud to have them on the Ufone Uth Records platform.”

Ufone Assistant Brand Activation & Operation Manager Khuram Leghari said: “When listening to demos sent in by //orangenoise initially, we all did a double take as their sound is so unexpectedly international. The band has been seen and heard across  Karachi’s underground scene and we are proud to have given them a national platform through Ufone Uth Records 2.0 – taking them from the underground and to the mainstream.”

In addition, Speaking on the experience of working with //orangenoise, producer of Ufone Uth Records, Louis J ‘Gumby’ Pinto said: “I have one word for these guys, WOW! I bet if we were not to tell anyone that they are a bunch of kids based out of Karachi, their music would pass off as something out of a Radiohead or Explosions in the Sky album. Talha as a musician would put most musicians in this country to shame. For those who don’t know this, apart from being a very innovative guitar player he also happens to be an amazing saxophone player. Faizan is equally creative on the keys and on the whole, it was just so much fun working on something completely different for a change in an ever repetitive industry. Chaser is definitely going to be a part of my car’s playlist.”

Directed by Zeeshan Parwez, Ufone Uth Records 2.0 Episode 6 will be airing on AAG, Aaj News, Apna Channel, ARY Muzik, ATV, A plus, Channel G, CNBC, KTN, Kashish, Metro, News One, Oxygen, Play TV, PTV Home, Style 360, TV One, Waseb and Wateen Cable Network as well as across Ufone Uth Records’ social media platforms, on Saturday 31th March 2012.
