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!"
