The Orielles

Halifax band The Orielles have been around the block for a little while now, they have done things the right way with countless live shows, circuiting etc. etc. But now they have finally released their debut single and we are glad they did.

‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ is glorious 8 minutes of sprawling, experimental, and most importantly enjoyable music. At 8 minutes you may wince, but the use of disco beat and proto punk posturing means this track keeps your feet shuffling throughout. ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ feels like it belongs mid-way between an ESG demo and A Certain Ratio, with a dash of The Chameleons on the side.

Not only do they have a stellar debut track out but they also have a tour and have announced their signing to Heavenly Records – we couldn’t recommend a better label for them to belong too. Take a listen to the track below.

Following an especially successful 2015, British surf pop trio, The Orielles, are ready to bring the same romancing of ears and imagination to this year with the seriously tantalising Jobin EP. Consisting of three slices of the band’s increasingly acclaimed blend of sultry melodies, bewitching harmonies, and feverish flavours bound in lo-fi beauty, the EP beguiles and inflames the senses whilst hinting that 2016 can be just as big if not greater in the band’s emerging history as its predecessor.

The Orielles began early 2013, the result of a house party and the creative uniting of sisters Esme and Sid Hand-Halford and friend Henry Wade. It was not to be an immediate launch into active duty as the girls only began learning their instruments from that point but with inspirations coming from riot grrrl and California surf bands, the Halifax trio were soon working on songs and honing their creative exploration. Since then, well-received tracks and releases has reinforced their rising reputation as a live proposition with 2015 especially potent as The Orielles drew big doses of acclaim at festivals such as Dot To Dot, Live At Leeds, and Liverpool Sound City as well as their individual shows.

orielles art_RingMasterReviewWith a UK tour in motion and a host of other events lined up, the band is set to be as busy as ever with the strong potential of greater success and praise heading their way just taking Jobin as a cue. It opens with its title track grabbing ears with an instant bait of crisp beats from Sid and the siren-esque lure of Henry’s seductive grooves. Their winding tendrils continue to entice and vein the rhythmic potency of the song, Esme’s bassline as captivating and alluring as her magnetic vocals and the surrounding celestial harmonies. The melodic character of the song has a House Of Love hue to its tempting with a psych rock flavouring only adding to the overall richness and raw yet elegant climate of the spellbinding track.

Twin Freaks is equally as compelling as it settles into a sweltering landscape with thick shadows to its evocative tone and inventive depth. Led by the almost flirtatious stroll of bass, there is an immediate infectiousness which is keenly shared by the vines of surf rock enterprise cast by Henry and the siren-esque quality of the vocals; both resonating in ears and memory as potently as the virulent charm and touch of the song.

The EP closing Sliders is the most feisty and energetic of the three tracks with tenacious beats and a vivacious energy stoking its melodic fire and anthemic gait. There is a punk rock scent to its revelry too, a touch of eighties band the Mo-dettes joining hues reminding of bands like The Raveonettes and Throwing Muses though being organically cultured in surf rock, the song emerges as something openly distinct to The Orielles.

Robed in discord tinged melodies, equipped with vociferous guitar, and basking in soaring harmonies, Jobin is a release which truly lingers in the memory. It is the persistent bringer of great pleasure and a strong nudge to pay close attention to the continuing and enthralling emergence of The Orielles.

This three-piece coming from what appears to be every northern town that there is create something of a summer-inducing sound. Fitting for those trips to the shop for a bottle of Lucozade the morning after the night before, The Orielles exude a lot of positivity in their sound, and are simply sumptuous. It’s a fantastic mix between a lo-fi ethic and a shoegaze sound that makes this band the joyful lot they are

The ORIELLES – ” Space Doubt “

The Orielles first caught my attention with their jangly brand of surf-pop earlier this year with their single, ‘Space Doubt’. Now, having received praise from the likes of Steve Lamacq and NME, and spending the year headlining gigs across the country, these three teens from Halifax are most certainly looking like Ones To Watch for 2016.

Consisting of sisters Esme and Sidonie, with friend Henry on guitar, The Orielles are skilled at creating sunny melodies, fused with reverb-strewn harmonies and their own trademark sparkling, youthful energy.

Having featured The Orielles numerous times on numerous Music Show’s, my love for this young band was cemented when I saw them live at The Victoria in the Summer. Although they seem endearingly modest, the band performed their unique, effervescent upbeat melodies with all the youthful zest I could have hoped for.With plenty of acclaim, airplay and live dates under their belt, I can’t wait to hear what these teens have in store for us in 2016.
