Studies show that the colour orange can cause one to experience a heightened sense of optimism, a boost in aspiration, and a stimulation of warmth and happiness.
Mild Orange is the new soundbaby of Josh Mehrtens (vocals, guitar) and Josh Reid (guitar), who first met in kindergarten but did not regain contact until sharing an exuberant flat at university. Their music is an eclectic of ‘melting melodies’, influenced by their often-strange living circumstances and lust for smooth sounds while studying in Dunedin.
Joined recently by fellow students, Jack Ferguson (drums) and Tom Kelk (bass), the group is beginning to flourish with new and old content to boot. The original vision has come into fruition, and the Mild Orange experience is sure to be felt.
