As The Orielles gear up for their UK headline Autumn tour, the band have released their new single ‘Let Your Dogtooth Grow.’
Talking about the track the band, made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade, said:
‘Let Your Dogtooth Grow’ was once again recorded and produced by the legend that is Marta ‘bueno’ Salogni. It features our first (but certainly not last) outing with the Mini Moog, which oscillates freely throughout the closing minute of the track. Furthermore, the outro to the song becomes a melting-pot of our influences, combining guitar riffs reminiscent of Turkish psychedelic musician, Mustafa Ozkent with the Moog Synth riff which is redolent of Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’.
Taking influence from Lanthimos’ abstruse, fictitious world where kids are brainwashed into thinking that they are confined within the boundaries of their household until their ‘Dogtooth’ falls out, the lyrics discuss how in reality, people our age face similar (albeit less bizarre) forms of oppression.
Whilst we’re much more than a stones throw away from knocking our teeth out in order to break from the omnipresent restrictions us teenagers and young adults face, it’s still something that really bugs us as a ‘young band’! When are you gonna let us out of the house?

Following a great run of festival appearances including sets at Greenman, Seachange & Port Eliot, the trio are back on the road this Autumn for a run of UK headline shows. Plus, the band have announced a special Manchester Christmas show at the Deaf Institute this December.
