The Orielles have today shared three exceptional remixes of tracks taken from their recent album, ‘Tableau’, which was released in the Autumn.
Manchester/Berlin duo Space Afrika turn the time-shifting ‘Beam/s’ into a perfect piece of floating, beatless ambient music that sounds like Slowdive zoning out in front of the London Symphony Orchestra, London based DJ/producer Shy One turns ‘The Room’ into a strobe lit nightclub, bringing in a bouncing bassline, a two-step rhythm, a rattling synth line and just enough squelching acid while Edinburgh based producer Eyes of Others brings the strange to a glorious remix of ‘Darkened Corners’, sending a vocal sample ping ponging around a mesmerizing, bouncing lo-fi techno stomp.
Space Afrika said of their remix:
“We really love voice and the vox is stunning. In our world makes less sense to take away from that. We approached it as, if this was our song how would we write it. It’s in line with our energy and sound and makes sense as continuation : progression in style from honest labour. Gave it a lot of love hope you all do enjoy it.”

Eyes of Others added about his re-working:
“I tried a couple of incarnations before reaching the final version, so I really felt as if I was living in The Orielles’ world for a week or so, with the vocals, the lyrics, looping in my psyche. A pretty good and heady place to be actually. I think I enjoy it when I’m working on something to the point where it gets quite intense and I start to feel a bit crazy, where just popping out to the shops feels weird…I’d find myself staring into the reduced to clear shelf asking ‘am I a structure or a pattern?”

Indie record shops praise for ‘Tableau’
“With Tableau, The Orielles are now three albums into their career, three albums that sound like they were made by three completely different bands. On their newest offering the gang from Halifax ditch the solar-powered cosmic funk of Disco Volador, for shadowy experimental pop, where their influences melt, mutate and merge until they’re completely unrecognisable, like visions from a dream.”
– Rough Trade –
“This LP brings us to unforeseen territory, with haunting basslines, math rock guitar riffs and a wide array of percussion and effects.”
“Flowing freely through genres and styles, it is both disorientating and hugely impressive in it’s scope. A proper ‘album’ experience with sonics and emotions.”
