The Orion Experience are a bouncy, fun-loving indie pop group whose mischievous songs nod to acts like the Hard Lessons, the Rentals, and Alphabeat. The band formed in 2005, born of a collaboration between longtime friends Orion Simprini and Linda Horwatt. After kicking some ideas around and generating some material, Simprini and Horwatt decided that they needed a few more members in order to round out their sound. They welcomed bassist Chris Lucas, drummer Jon Weber, and guitarist Reef Roxx into the fold, and got to work recording their debut full-length, 2007's Cosmicandy. The album's lead single, "I'm Obsessed with You," made some waves in the blogosphere (notably with blogger Perez Hilton), and the band hustled back into the studio to make some new recordings. Their sophomore effort, a self-titled EP produced by Jon Kaplan, was made available online the following year. ~ Margaret Reges
