Single of the week has to go to The Orielles and their brand new track leading upto their debut album this year! ‘Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist)’. It is is a perfect example of what The Orielles have grown into over these last few years, ‘Let Your Dogtooth Grow’ was special, however this track just certifies it.
It has that Orielles sound to it that they’ve started putting their stamp on over this last year. Cool and hip guitars combined with luscious, sweet vocals. The band have often dubbed it as Disco/Punk, which is a great way of explaining it, as it doesn’t stick to normal song conventions, yet it has this perfect dance-vibe. The best part of the track has to be thos dreamy guitars, which are magically combined with these loud bells, reminiscent of those great 70’s disco tracks.
If this is an indication of what we can expect from the album then it’s looking really promising. This album has been in the works for a while and it’s going to draw a lot of attention the bands way, hopefully taking them up to that next level.
