The Orielles share new single 'I Only Bought It For The Bottle'
Halifax’s fast rising The Orielles have shared new single, I Only Bought It For The Bottle.
The track follows, their spatial funk pysch opus , Sugar Tastes Like Salt, that recalled both ESG and fellow north-west pioneers A Certain Ratio.
Made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade, I Only Bought It For The Bottle takes inspiration from the band’s joint love of film as Esmé explains:
“The track is loosely based upon Nicolas Winding Refn film The Neon Demon as it talks about the idea of how beauty has become a currency and that we no longer desire substance, yet seek things based on appearance and face value.The microcosm of this idea comes through the lyrics which explain a story of how the subject bought a bottle because it looked really nice and tasty but actually it tasted like shit.”
A fantastically engaging and exciting live proposition, the last month saw the band complete their first UK headline tour. The summer sees them play a number of festivals across the UK, including slots at Green Man, Truck, Sea Change and Port Eliot.
‘I only Bought It For The Bottle’ is released via Heavenly Recordings and precedes their summer festival appearances. The full list of dates are as follows:
26 - London, The Finsbury
8 - Manchester, Night & Day Café
23 - Steventon, Truck Festival
27 - St Germans, Port Eliot Festival
