NEWS: The Orielles announce new single ‘I Only Bought It For The Bottle’

Halifax’s fast rising trio The Orielles have announced details of the release of I Only Bought It For The Bottle, their second track for Heavenly Recordings.

Produced by Marta Salogni, the track follows, their Heavenly debut, Sugar Tastes Like Salt, the eight-minute plus burst of spatial-funk that in part recalled both ESG and fellow north-west pioneers A Certain Ratio.

Made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade, still aged only 21, 18 & 17 respectively, I Only Bought It For The Bottle takes inspiration from the band’s joint love of film as Esmé explains:

The track is loosely based upon Nicolas Winding Refn film The Neon Demon as it talks about the idea of how beauty has become a currency and that we no longer desire substance, yet seek things based on appearance and face value.
The microcosm of this idea comes through the lyrics which explain a story of how the subject bought a bottle because it looked really nice and tasty but actually it tasted like shit.

The last month saw the band complete their first UK headline tour. The summer sees them play a number of festivals across the UK, including slots at Green Man, Truck, Sea Change and Port Eliot.

The full list of dates are as follows:

26 – London, The Finsbury

8 – Manchester, Night & Day Café
23 – Steventon, Truck Festival
27 – St Germans, Port Eliot Festival

19 – Glanusk Park, Green Man Festival
26 – Totnes, Sea Change Festival

03 – Bingley, Bingley Music Live
16 – Chester, The Good Life Experience
