Since forming in the West Yorkshire town of Halifax over a decade ago whilst still in their early teens, The Orielles have journeyed from lo-fi DIY indie origins to Stereolab and A Certain Ratio-inspired Avante-pop.

Now, with a new album, Tableau (Heavenly Recordings, 2022), The Orielles have created their first genuinely contemporary record; an experimental double album self-produced in collaboration with producer Joel Anthony Patchett (King Krule, Tim Burgess). In doing so, The Orielles have utilised holistic jazz practices, oblique 21st-century electronica, experimental 1960s tape loop methods, otherworldly AutoTuned vocal sounds, the downer dub of Burial, Sonic Youth’s focus on improvisation and feedback, and Brian Eno’s legendary Oblique Strategy cards.

The result is a double album that rewards profound immersion, as complex as diverse. Initially, there might appear to be little that links the Sonic Youth dirge of Television with the spectral, beatless Some Day Later. Or tracks like Hornfleaur Remembered and The Room, which carry the influence of the 21st-century dance the band has been devouring, with the challenging extended song suite that makes up the album’s A-side. Further listening, however, reveals recurring motifs and sonic ideas that closely bind the album’s sixteen tracks.

Opening up for the Orielles are one of our favourite rising indie-pop bands, Vacant Weekend. Check out one of their tracks below and make sure to get down early for their set!
