Halifax’s fast rising The Orielles have unveiled a pair of remixes of ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’, their debut single for Heavenly Recordings which was released in February of this year.
The track, originally an eight-minute plus burst of spatial-funk that in part recalled both ESG and fellow north-west pioneers A Certain Ratio, gets the remix treatment from Radioactive Man who turns in an electro flavoured workout while Andrew Weatherall delivers one of his classic spaced out dub masterpieces.
Talking about the remixes, the band said:
We love the Radioactive Man remix and it’s use of Esme’s vocals, additionally the electronic drum beat is great to groove to! A lot of the guitar is omitted in this tune, making it really different to our original, which is interesting to hear.
Weatherhall’s mix makes amazing use of the bassline, as well as the guitar riff which is repeated creating a tune reminiscent of The Clash’s London Calling. The improvised vocal chants are also utilised in an amazing way, which we love.

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, the band recently released their second single for Heavenly, produced by Marta Salogni ‘I Only Bought It For The Bottle’.
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.
