Halifax trio The Orielles are gearing up to release their debut album ‘Silver Dollar Moment’ on 16th February and have already given a taster in the form of ‘Let Your Dogtooth Grow’.
Now, they’ve served up the final track on the album, ‘Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist)’. A twisting slice that melds together indie, funk and yep, a bit of a disco vibe, it also crams in some psych flourishes and a swirling guitar crescendo.
Speaking of the track, the band said: “Blue Suitcase is a track that was mostly written over the last few days of summer, inspired by events, discussions and ‘philosophical’ musings that took place in the studio during the recording of the album. We wanted to completely let loose with the track, combining psych- garage wig outs with elements of our favourite disco and dance boogie tracks, such as Luther Davis Group’s ‘You Can Be A Star’ and Rita Lee’s ‘Chega Mais’. The lyrics also fuse together an anecdotal story of spotting an unaccompanied case on a train platform, and the allegorical discussions and theories that followed. This included topics ranging from Schrodingers Cat to James and the Giant Peach!”
The Orielles are also set to head off out on tour in February, playing a whole string of dates around the UK and in Europe. Tickets are on sale now.
