The Angry Orts combine disco-punk beats and approachable pop melodies, making songs that have been described as “frantic-n-dancey” by the Portland Mercury and as having a “Blondie-inspired poppiness”.
"Angry, my ass. The Angry Orts are far from upset; instead the bouncy local band captures the blurry pleasures of basement punk anthems, late-night house parties, and the dedicated devotion to even the most ambitious of pop melodies. Basically, it's what the Fastbacks would sound like if they lived in Portland right now, instead of Seattle back when. The Purple Rhino Squad vs. The Blue Whale Super Heavy Assault Troops (is)... an album of thrilling little pop songs that transcend the silly moniker of the band—and the record—by which they are presented." - Ezra Ace Caraeff, The Portland Mercury
The Purple Rhino Squad versus The Blue Whale Super Heavy Assault Troops, was recorded by Skyler Norwood at Miracle Lake Studios and is the band's first full length effort.
