In the spring The Orielles played a run of headline UK shows, and, to mark the occasion they took their friend, photographer and video director Neelam Khan Vela on the road with them. The result is a fun, off kilter and surreal video, sound-tracked by Radioactive Man’s remix of the bands debut single ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt.’

Esmé, the bands lead singer says of the video:

“We shot the tour video with our good friend (and one of our favourite photographers) Neelam Khan Vela behind the lens, which made it easier for us take on a more unconventional performative role for the tour documentary, as first suggested by Neelam.

Together we then decided to create the tour video as a spinoff from our Sugar Tastes Like Salt video by throwing us into a semi-fictional universe, symptomatic of a nightmare and involving the same masked characters who represent our ‘alter egos’. We love the way it combines shots of our shows, parties and general goofing around with an underlying tone of something more dark and sinister, which is almost a personification of the song itself.”
