Currently they are gigging the Apple Quintet which features drumkit, congas, bass, keys and vocals.

ORA is a self-taught artist from Naarm, a producer and multi-instrumentalist, film-maker and visual artist. Having fronted a myriad of bands to living in perpetual studio mode for the last few years, he has worked with some of this countries most prodigious artists, the last few years pushing his skill-set as a multi-instrumentalist solo act. Using a bunch of self-recorded samples, drum-machine, keys and synth, guitar and bass, he has shaped a truly unique genre-bending set of songs, in the disciplines of soul music, electronic music and experimental chaos. A new record is in the works, the first single will be slated for release by August 2022.
