If “Orange Is For Love” seems like a pretty vague and symbolic, bad-ass trippy title, it’s because that’s precisely how the song sounds and feels like.
“Orange Is For Love” instantly evokes Brain Johnstone Massacre doing a Spaghetti Western soundtrack, especially if the Western was unfolding in some kind of an alternative, trippy reality, envisioned by a creative stoner’s sedated mind. The dragged-out, borderline eerie whammy and echo guitar effects sneak in throughout the song like some hazy thoughts and memories, creeping in a psychedelic trip.
Even though “Orange Is For Love”is the epitome of stoner rock, and as such is quite chilled out, there’s a strange intensity to it, with an intentionally repetitive, snappy rhythm giving the overall mellow vibe a nice edge.
Overall, “Orange Is For Love”has pretty much all the trademarks of stoner and psychedelic rock. The only thing I personally would have liked is some kind of a mellow, melodic guitar solo to give the song a bit more musical flavor. Nevertheless, definitely a cool song that can take you on a trip to a number of places, real and imaginary.
