Order Of Voices: "Anyone who says they're original is lying"

Sheffield quintet discover what happens when prog meets grunge…

“Anyone who says they are original is lying.”

As statements go, it’s a pretty bold one. But Leigh Oates, singer with Sheffield quintet Order Of Voices, has a point: it’s undeniably difficult for modern artists to be truly original due to the plethora of genre-defining musicians who have come before them. It’s virtually impossible not to hear familiar quirks or nuances in the vast majority of music that is being released today. Order Of Voices, however, have ceased the pursuit of originality in favour of reimagining the past into an amalgamation of past and present.
