LISTEN: The Orielles share new track ‘Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist)’

One of the most exciting young bands in the country right now, Halifax’s fast-rising The Orielles have announced details of ‘Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist)’, the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, Silver Dollar Moment which is released on Friday 16th February 2017 on Heavenly Recordings.

Talking about the track, the band said: Blue Suitcase is a track that was mostly written over the last few days of summer, inspired by events, discussions and ‘philosophical’ musings that took place in the studio during the recording of the album. We wanted to completely let loose with the track, combining psych- garage wig outs with elements of our favourite disco and dance boogie tracks, such as Luther Davis Group’s ‘You Can Be A Star’ and Rita Lee’s ‘Chega Mais’. The lyrics also fuse together an anecdotal story of spotting an unaccompanied case on a train platform, and the allegorical discussions and theories that followed. This included topics ranging from Schrodingers Cat to James and the Giant Peach!


Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist) was recorded during the album sessions at Eve Studio in Stockport in the late summer of 2017 with producer Marta Salongi (Bjork, Insecure Men) and follows the release of previous tracks Let Your Dogtooth Grow, I Only Bought It For The Bottle and Sugar Tastes Like Salt.
