Oranjuly is an American alternative rock band based in Boston, Massachusetts founded in 2008 by American songwriter Brian E. King (singer/multi-instrumentalist). Their sound has been described by music journalists as a mix of Weezer and The Beach Boys because of their catchy songwriting, intricate arrangements and heavy usage of vocal harmonies. The name Oranjuly is a combination of King's favorite color and birth month.
Oranjuly's self-titled album was released on July 2, 2010 during a show at The Middle East. Songs for the album were written and recorded by King over several years since his first songwriting sessions in 2005.
Though King recorded Oranjuly's songs himself, he recruits other Boston-based musicians to play live shows and occasionally record.
