The Orielles @ Record Junkee


Halifax’s fast rising The Orielles have announced details of a run of headline shows in October of this year. The band also have a hectic summer planned with a number of festival slots including appearances at Green Man, Sea Change, Port Eliot and Truck.

Additionally, the band have just shared the video for their current single, Only Bought It For The Bottle. The ‘on the road’ video, directed by Nathan Fogg, was shot on the bands recent UK headline tour, which included a brace of sold-out London shows at The Social and The Finsbury.

The band, made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade, still aged only 21, 18 & 17 respectively, released their debut single Sugar Tastes Like Salt earlier this year on Heavenly Recordings to much acclaim. The eight-minute plus burst of spatial-funk that in part recalled both ESG and fellow north-west pioneers A Certain Ratio, was produced by Marta Salogni, one of the most exciting young producers in the UK right now.
