Formed in Georgia in 2012, The Orange Constant creates
vintage rock with a contemporary twist. The group’s sound
ranges from southern psychedelia to progressive composition
— all with a spontaneous yet pop-like sensibility.

TOC’s debut album, Time to Go (June 2015), was recorded
with Grammy-nominated producer John Keane (R.E.M.,
Widespread Panic) and garnered praise from Relix Magazine
as a “confident and polished debut album.” Shortly after, the band won the 2016 Flagpole Athens Music Award for best
“Jam/Funk” band and has since headlined the city’s regionally acclaimed festival, AthFest.

March 2017 saw the release of Point of Reference, which was recorded in Athens, Ga. and produced by Drew Vandenberg
(of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Futurebirds). Fueled by
Vandenberg’s experimental leanings, the sophomore effort displays maturity in songwriting and embraces more risktaking
in the studio. The LP demonstrates an urge to break
genre restrictions as it draws inspiration from 70’s AOR and
contemporaries like My Morning Jacket. Nearly one year after
its release, Point of Reference earned the band a second
feature in Relix Magazine through its notably “lush
soundscapes and clear, purposeful compositions.”

In the fall of 2018, the group returned to Keane to record what would become its third full-length release. Peel came in May
2020 and solidified TOC’s sonic spectrum; heartfelt anthems
with catchy choruses ride alongside instrumental mastery with psychedelic undertones. With its rich vocal harmonies,
hooky riffing, and succinct songwriting, the album
embellishes much of what Time to Go sought and captures the
band’s most current sound.

The Orange Constant thrives on creating songs that differ
from one another and possess their own inspired character.
The band consistently tours the American East and shares
bills with acts such as Perpetual Groove, TAUK, Pigeons
Playing Ping Pong, Ripe and CBDB. The group is: Andrew
Brantley (guitar/vocals), Nickalous Benson (guitar/vocals),
Tyler Walker (bass/vocals), Chris Freiberg (keyboards) and
Sam Groveman (drums).
