The Orielles are back with their second single on Heavenly,‘I Only Bought It For The Bottle’. The Surf-Pop Halifax Trio’s dreamy new summertime track with psychedelic guitar riffs is produced by Marta Salogni. DIY Magazine described the track as ‘Deliciously nonchalant in sentiment, yet utterly coated in infectiously giddy hooks’.The track takes inspiration from the band’s 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.”
“I Only Bought It For The Bottle is as direct as its predecessor was diverse. It’s pop music, but in the Josef K, off-kilter jangle type of way. Which is obviously excellent.” — DIY Magazine
“New cut ‘I Only Bought It For The Bottle’ is wonderfully odd, with the tripped out guitar effects given a slightly brittle overtone.
The elastic bass sits against drums that threaten to implode at any minute, before giving way to a deliriously infectious chorus.” – Clash Music
