“Sonic exploration” is the keyword for The Orielles’ exhilarating new release, Tableau, and, to be fair, for any of their records!
Coming from the realms of lo-fi indie pop and space rock, the British trio gained influence from Manchester’s underground culture, populated by DJs and electronic music producers. That kind of methodology led them to manufacture their chaotic and euphoric new sound: a complex palette of acoustic layers get processed through digital plugins and then lost in a shoegaze landscape.
In this third LP, The Orielles attempt to represent the present: they venture into a variety of genres that taps into dream pop, post-rock, free jazz; evoking Thom Yorke’s latest productions as well as Sonic Youth or FKA Twigs.
How is this going to be translated into their live show at MOMO Festival? The band promise to expect the unexpected!
