Origami Angel

A picture of Ryland Heagy on the left, And Pat Doherty on the right.

I’m going to jump straight to the point. 
A band I’ve been listening to for the past two or three years, called Origami Angel doesn’t get enough credit. 
Origami Angel is a two-person band.
Ryland Heagy As the Singer/Guitarist, 
And Pat Doherty as the drummer. Origami angel is a Washington DC band, and they have a total of 3 albums out right now. 
Which are… Somewhere City, Brightest Days, and Gami Gang. 
My personal favorite is Somewhere city, and my favorite song from that album is The Air Up Here. But that’s not to say that I like their other albums any less. 
This band has a somewhat consistent genre which is indie rock.
Which is one of my favorite genres of music. 

Somewhere City, Released Nov 15th, 2019

Somewhere city is what might call a world building album. It was released on November 15th, 2019. This song has a total of 10 songs that span over the course of 30 minutes. What I mentioned earlier about a “world building album.”
What I mean is, this song builds an entire world from only 10 songs. Some talk about amusement parks, some talk about nostalgia, and childhood homes. 
and others talk about the special people in the lives of the artists. By far this has to be one of my favorite albums. 

The Brightest Days, Released June 16th, 2023

The Brightest Days album is also one of my favorite albums. It was released June 16th, 2023, and has a total of 8 songs. This album isn’t like the previous, I wouldn’t call it a world building album, but nonetheless It still packs a punch. This song mainly has to do with summer, and Childhood memories. Cloudy days, and sunny days. 
In order of popularity, I think this one reigns second.  Right under Somewhere city. I forgot to mention but my favorite song from this album has to be My PG County Summer.


#GamiGang, Released April 30th, 2021

And last but not least, The Gami Gang Album. This Album was released April 30th, 2021. Also, one of their biggest albums, with a total of 20 songs, the take course over the span of 50 minutes. This song is nothing like the previous two. This album hits hard. The genre is heavily rock i would say. But still one of their best. I would have to say that my favorite song from this album has to be, Noah Fence. 
And with this final album this concludes my thoughts on this band. 
I heavily recommend checking them out if you’re a fan of indie rock. 
Thanks for reading.
