If there’s one thing in a band that you must have aside from, I guess, individual talent or ability, it’s chemistry. Such was the impetus in the creation of The Orielles when sisters Esme and Sid Hand-Halford met Henry Wade at a house party and hit it off from their common ground.
Cutting their teeth gigging and more or less learning, including their instruments, as they went, the output of The Orielles as they continue to mature is imbued with an inviting natural warmth and ease. The band’s latest single, “Jobin,” floats beautifully with a far away shoegaze meets riot grrrl sound with surf-pop melodies.
“Jobin” comes off of a forthcoming three track EP which will arrive as a 7″ flexi-disc with an accompanying zine produced by Art Is Hard Records. Pre-order the 7″, out April 1st, and stream The Orielles’ “Jobin” below.
