The Orwells are a rising punk group from Elmhurst. CHIRP’s Katie Owens sat down with them at the CHIRP studio where they talked about navigating the music industry as teenagers, tour pit stop eats, and how DIY spaces contributed to their success. The Orwells released their first album, Remember When, on Autumn Tone Records in 2012, and are one of the few Chicago bands playing at Lollapalooza 2013.
