The Orielles, full of youthful energy and charm, graced Nation of Shopkeepers, Leeds, last Wednesday, as part of a scattering of free gigs around the country. Their homemade, surfer sound washed over the crowd, who happily bopped away to their blissful beats.
The glistening trio are sisters Esme and Sid Hand-Halford along with friend, Henry Wade. They have continued to build on last year’s success, completing a tour, releasing new material and constantly gaining recognition and praise from industry experts and fans alike. The band’s lyrical genius speaks of teenage angst and complex relationships, all masked behind sunny melodies.
Flexi-green-disk EP ‘Jobin’ is now available on Art is Hard Records. Catch them live at Manchester’s Fallow Café on the 25th November.
