Orbital, aka brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, became one of the biggest names in music during the mid-1990s by reinventing the notion of what a dance act could do live, turning multitudes of rock fans on to the limitless pleasures of electronic music.

They have crafted a vast catalogue of ambitious yet accessible music, informed by a wide range of genres such as ambient, electro, punk and film scores.

Since breaking through with their landmark 1990 Top 20 hit Chime, Orbital have released a string of critically praised albums – including the 1993 landmark Orbital 2 and 1996’s In Sides.

2023 has brought their 10th studio album Optical Delusion, a deep dig into the unquiet psyche of our increasingly surreal and disordered world which included fabulous, furious lead single Dirty Rat, a collaboration with Sleaford Mods.
