The brainchild of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Davis, Big Orange evolves into a full band onstage, with Davis’ vocals, piano and guitar work complemented by life-long friends David Jago on bass, Emma Adams on synths and percussion, Jamie Gallacher on drums and Brother Chris Davis on guitar. With roots in the sleepy town of Harvey in the WA’s South West — the name Big Orange a little nod to the monument in their hometown.
Beginning life as a project to release the solo compositions by Perth’s Andrew “Goldy” Meredith (Pat Chow, Thee Gold Blooms), Goldy got a talented group of friends together and The Mackerels were born. Crafting jangly indie-pop sounds, the authentic, endearing sounds of The Mackerels lure you in on first listen and may just become your new favourite fish.
