They recorded their second album titled Point of Reference at Chase Park Transduction with Drew Vandenberg (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Mothers) in late 2016. Point of Reference released on March 24th, 2017 and is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and here on the official website.
The Orange Constant draws influence from many different styles to create a musical experience that is new and unique. The Orange Constant thrives on creating songs that differ from one another and possess their own inspired character. Their songs follow no specific writing format, allowing the band to run with any ideas that bring the music to life. Fans are often drawn to their ability to meld progressive composition and improvisation with a pop-like sensibility. The band’s lyrics often include content that reveals personal values and experiences. This allows the band to groove with meaning and depth. Being influenced by bands such as My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, and Incubus, TOC focuses their energy on live performances that resonate deeply with the audience. The band consists of Andrew Brantley (guitar/vocal), Nickalous Benson (guitar/vocal), Tyler Walker (bass/vocal), Chris Freiberg (keyboard), and Sam Groveman (drums),
“Eclectic rock n’ roll, everything from blissful southern rock and indie jams to urban funk.” – Grant Purvis (Point of Reference review)
“The Orange Constant’s confident and polished debut album Time to Go is laden with connective riffs and melodious charm. Much of the album evokes a 70’s FM AOR vibe, without appearing self conscious” – Larson Sutton, Relix Magazine
“They have hit a home run on their first trip to the plate. From the first strains of “Emily” all the way through to the jammed-out coda to “Ask Me to Jump,” Time to Go is a pure delight. You will hear influences throughout the disk, but this is fresh and exciting.” – Scott Hopkins, Music Fest News
For the past year AFTM has been building a dedicated fan base by performing in Athens and Atlanta at UGA fraternity/sorority events and bars such as Smith's Olde Bar, The Silver Dollar, and Whiskey Bent. Currently, the band is preparing to record some of their original tracks and hoping to release them in Spring of 2018.
