The Orwells have been creating quite a buzz since their SXSW debut, so it’s not a surprise that the Chicago-based garage-rock group, comprised of five 17-year-olds Mario Cuomo, Grant Brinner, Henry Brinner, Dominick Corso and Matt O’Keefe, came out of that swarm with a new deal. Autumn Tone, the Aquarium Drunkard-affiliated imprint, will release their LP “Remember When” on Aug. 7, and the teenagers are in L.A. to play a handful of dates. The single “Mallrats (La La La)” would make Kevin Smith (and his entire motley crew from the 1995 film with the same name) proud. These kids may be young, but with their bouncy melodies and thrashy charm they’ve found a way to articulate their suburban restlessness in a way fans of Ty Segall and FIDLAR will love.
