Point Of Reference
TOC’s 2nd album, now in all major stores online.
“Funky, unassuming, well-tailored rock n’ roll music.”
“Point of Reference displays a striking maturity in TOC’s songwriting” – Homegrown Music Network
“The Orange Constant returns with their second full length effort… [their] funky sound immediately pops on the first listen” – Live For Live Music
“As great as Time to Go is, Point of Reference is better. The new album features songs written over a span of four years… these boys can certainly jam, but there is much more to their sound… Point of Reference soars” – Tie Your Shoes
“The Orange Constant’s sophomore studio album, manages to surpass their very clean and professional release Live At Sit-N-Spin Studios… sheer ingenuity, truthfully original structure, and intimate passion can be felt emanating from the band. Point Of Reference demonstrates their urge to break genre restrictions and find a sound to call their own” – Collective Conscience Atlanta

About The Orange Constant
The Orange Constant formed in August 2012 and quickly made a name for themselves in Statesboro, GA. Now, The Orange Constant resides in Athens, GA and performs in venues all over the Southeast and continues to grow their fan-base with their contemporary yet vintage rock/jam sound. TOC recorded their debut album, Time to Go, with Grammy nominated producer John Keane (REM, Widespread Panic) which was released June 19th, 2015. Time to Go has garnered praise from many publications, including Relix Magazine, who included TOC in their “On the Verge” column in the October-November 2015 issue. Shortly after, TOC joined the Homegrown Music Network whose roster includes acts such as Lotus, the Motet, Dangermuffin, and Big Something. In addition, they have played on bills that include Perpetual Groove, The Mantras, TAUK, Atlas Road Crew, and Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band.
They recorded their second album titled Point of Reference at Chase Park Transduction with Drew Vandenberg (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Mothers) in late 2016. Point of Reference released on March 24th, 2017 and is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and here on the official website.
The Orange Constant draws influence from many different styles to create a musical experience that is new and unique. The Orange Constant thrives on creating songs that differ from one another and possess their own inspired character. Their songs follow no specific writing format, allowing the band to run with any ideas that bring the music to life. Fans are often drawn to their ability to meld progressive composition and improvisation with a pop-like sensibility. The band’s lyrics often include content that reveals personal values and experiences. This allows the band to groove with meaning and depth. Being influenced by bands such as My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, and Incubus, TOC focuses their energy on live performances that resonate deeply with the audience. The band consists of Andrew Brantley (guitar/vocal), Nickalous Benson (guitar/vocal), Tyler Walker (bass/vocal), Chris Freiberg (keyboard), and Sam Groveman (drums),
“Eclectic rock n’ roll, everything from blissful southern rock and indie jams to urban funk.” – Grant Purvis (Point of Reference review)
“The Orange Constant’s confident and polished debut album Time to Go is laden with connective riffs and melodious charm. Much of the album evokes a 70’s FM AOR vibe, without appearing self conscious” – Larson Sutton, Relix Magazine
“They have hit a home run on their first trip to the plate. From the first strains of “Emily” all the way through to the jammed-out coda to “Ask Me to Jump,” Time to Go is a pure delight. You will hear influences throughout the disk, but this is fresh and exciting.” – Scott Hopkins, Music Fest News
