Pacific Short Info

The Cheshire based band is made up of brothers/songwriters Anthony Orzel (vocals/piano) and Daniel Orzel (bass/backing vocals), Dave Bithell (lead guitars/backing vocals) and Drew Burns (drums/percussion).

The release of piano-led Alternative Indie/Rock band Pacific's EP 'What Are You Waiting For' follows the huge success of February 2015's single release ‘Time to Forget’. The song reaped Pacific’s first BBC Radio 1 play on the Huw Stephens show, along with airplay on a further eighty UK radio stations. Reviewers were hugely enthusiastic; “I think this is in another league... A wonderfully well-crafted song with a vocal that's nectar for the ears” (Bauer Media News), praising it for its “flavoursome sound and masterful craft” (RingMaster Review) and exclaiming that “it’s got that bit of magic, something undeniable, something brilliant. Never mind a band for the future… Pacific are a band for right now” (The Musical Outcast).

Pacific have previously received strong backing from BBC 6’s Mark Radcliffe who praises the band’s music as “outstanding”, along with BBC Stoke Introducing’s Rob Adcock, who has invited the band for live interviews and sessions. Additionally, Q Magazine have featured the band, NME have shared the band’s past music videos, with Pacific also being included in Napster’s 'New and Good' Playlist on multiple occasions. On Monday 31st August 2015, Pacific opened the Main Stage of Liverpool International Music Festival, playing alongside headliners Echo and the Bunnymen, Basement Jaxx and Labrinth. On Saturday 5th December 2015, Manchester United FC played single 'Dream of Mine' around the stadium to 80,000 people at Half-time as part of the Old Trafford playlist for the Premier League match against West Ham Utd. On Saturday 12th December 2015, Pacific will be playing the City Square Stage at Manchester City's Ethiad Stadium, supplying pre-match entertainment for the Premier League match against Swansea FC.

Highly anticipated follow up single ‘Those Nights’ was released in June 2015. Again reviewers praised the track, affirming that “the band manages to blend commercial appeal with musical integrity and quality in fine style” (The Musical Outcast), stating that “very rarely do you hear a track where every single component fits into place as well as ‘Those Nights’ demonstrates (Radical’s Rising).

“Up-beat, beautiful pop-rock with the most addictive vocals. Those Orzel brothers sound irresistible!” - Polly James, Capital Radio

“Competent sounding Pop/Rock with a hint of Alt. in there. I must confess the very strength of the melodious Anthony Orzel (singer)… I will be keeping an eye!” - Simon Li of Universal Music
