The Orkids are an electro-rock band out of Athens founded in late 2008 by guitarist Adam Monica and singer Sandra Gallardo. The group recently transformed from a studio project between Adam and Sandra to a five-piece rock outfit comprised of veteran Athens musicians. With the addition of Joshua Schwarber (keyboards), Brad Lee Zimmerman (drums), and Sheldon Wolfe (bass), The Orkids combine danceable beats and edgy guitar/synth lines with catchy girl/boy vocals to deliver thrilling, infectious pop. In summer 2009, The Orkids completed their first EP.
