Following on from their fabulous Let Your Dogtooth Grow, Halifax three piece The Orielles have released a new track from their forthcoming debut album, Silver Dollar Moment, which drops on Friday 16th February via the ever brilliant Heavenly Recordings. Titled Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist), the band say about the track “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!”
It’s a swirling, engrossing and instantly lovable track, slightly angular through the chorus before everything seems to loosen, maybe with the vocal harmonies that warm it all up, or the addition of tambourine and bells and other kitchen sink percussion equipment, which makes it all the more brilliant. The Orielles are in danger of being our favourite band right now.
