Glasgow's The Orchids have been making heartfelt, jangly indiepop for more than three decades, releasing records most famously on the legendary indie label Sarah Records. It's been a while since they've released an album -- eight years, specifically -- but their seventh long-player, Dreaming Kind, is due out September 2 via Skep Wax (the label run by Amelia Fletcher and David Pursey of Heavenly/The Catenary Wires).

The first single from Dreaming Kind is "This Boy Is A Mess," the kind of suave, sophisticated and swooning track, full of jazzy chords and lush harmonies, that The Orchids have always done so well. You can listen to that below.
