The Orielles Plot 2019 Tour Dates And Share Two New Tracks

Tuesday, 06 November 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

The Orielles will embark on a UK tour in February.

The band will return to the road following a handful of previously announced dates at the end of the year, including their biggest London show to date at Heaven plus a sold out homecoming at the Hebden Bridge Trades Club just before Christmas.

Tickets for the new gigs go on sale Friday, with stops planned in Leeds, Birmingham, Reading, Nottingham, Preston, Bristol, York, Hull, Norwich, Bedford and Oxford. 

Made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand-Halford, and Henry Carlyle Wade, the Orielles have now also recruited a new member, Alex Stephens, on keyboards.

To celebrate the tour news, the band have shared two new tracks, Bobbi's Second World and their Peggy Gou cover, It Makes You Forget (Itgehane). Talking about the tacks, the band said:

"Bobbi's Second World, written with the addition of a new member on keys, exhibits an explosion of new sounds and ideas that came to fruition after a long summer of playing festivals and taking inspiration from music that made us dance. It centres around the story of a cat named Bobbi who, in order to become a lady, has to experience the extremities of two complex and differing realities- situated in her front and back gardens respectively.

"The eccentric instrumentation, influenced by northern soul, post-punk and funk music, matches the quirkiness of the lyrics to create a song that concerns a young cats maturity whilst displaying a certain maturity in the music itself. After noticing a passion for songs that make us emotional; want to dance and quite literally 'forget', we decided to cover one of Peggy Gou's latest floor fillers, 'Itgehane aka It Makes You Forget' hoping that we could evoke the aforementioned qualities of music within other listeners!"

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
