Oranjuly is an American alternative rock band based in Boston, Massachusetts founded in 2008 by American songwriter Brian E. King (singer/multi-instrumentalist). Their sound has been described by music journalists as a mix of Weezer and The Beach Boys [1][2][3] because of their catchy songwriting, intricate arrangements and heavy usage of vocal harmonies. The name Oranjuly is a combination of King's favorite color and birth month.[4]

Oranjuly's self-titled album was released on July 2, 2010 during a show at The Middle East.[5] Songs for the album were written and recorded by King over several years since his first songwriting sessions in 2005.[6]

Members[edit]

Though King recorded Oranjuly's songs himself, he recruits other Boston-based musicians to play live shows and occasionally record.

  • Brian E. King - songs/arrangements/recordings, vocals, guitar, keys
  • Lou Paniccia - drums
  • Matt Girard - Bass & Guitar
