The past 12 months has been some year for The Orielles. Having started it as one of the most talked about new band’s in the U.K. thanks to a salvo of singles, Sugar Tastes Like Salt, I Only Bought It For The Bottle and Let Your Dogtooth Grow, the previous year for Heavenly Recordings, 2018 saw them deliver on the hype thanks to a much acclaimed debut album, Silver Dollar Moment in February and their breathtaking live show which saw them sell-out increasingly large venues across the U.K and play festivals from Latitude to Camp Bestival and End of the Road. 2019 has seen support from Radio 1, a storming set at the BBC’s Big Weekend, and even a gig at Abbey Road, screened on BBC 2.
Made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade, they grabbed attention thanks to the spatial-funk of their album that in part recalled both ESG and fellow north-west pioneers A Certain Ratio and marked them out as a band willing and able to explore the more interesting musical corners. Currently recording album 2, and playing a handful of festivals this summer, they will be releasing long-awaited new material in the autumn.
