We’re thrilled to announce that The Orielles will release their debut album ‘Silver Dollar Moment’ on Friday 16th February, 2018.
The trio recorded the record at Eve Studio in Stockport late this summer with producer du jour Marta Salogni (Bjork, Insecure Men) and it features the singles ‘I Only Bought It For The Bottle’ and ‘Let Your Dogtooth Grow.’
Across 45-minutes, the album itself takes all kinds of turns, into ESG-ish yips and funk, dreamy-arch harmonies, disco synth-pows and stoner bongos, unsettling submerged voices – with all that and more it still flows like a fountain of indie pop, fresh and catchy and altogether. The songs themselves are inspired by cinema, literature and physiological details of domestic animals.
“So many pop songs are about relationships or growing up or whatever,” they say. “We wanted to write a few songs that make people think, What the hell is that about?”
As for the album title – “It’s anything that’s unexpectedly brilliant,” explains Henry. “We played in Toronto, at this bar called the Silver Dollar Room. We’d been in Canada for 36 hours, no sleep, we’d already played at 10, then we played a show at the Silver Dollar at 2am and it was one of the best shows we’ve played. So a silver dollar moment became anything that’s good, but unexpectedly.”
The trio have also released the video for their current single ‘Let Your Dogtooth Grow’ which you can watch here:
This summer the band played a series of festivals, followed by a busy UK tour with three sold out London shows this year. The band will make a live return in the spring of next year with shows in the UK & Europe, including an appearance at this years The Great Escape festival in Brighton.
