Sold out shows, multiple major festival appearances and inking a deal with Heavenly Records made 2017 quite the year for The Orielles, a dance-punk troupe from Halifax. 2018 looks like it could be even bigger if new track “Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist) is anything to go by.

Recorded during album sessions with producer Marta Salongi (Insecure Men, Bjork), “Blue Suitcase” is a heady mix of Nile Rodger’s jangly guitar funk and Le Club’s timeless french disco sound. A brave step into uncharted territory, one thankfully devoid of bongos and saxophones.

Talking about the track, the band said: “Blue Suitcase is a track that was mostly written over the last few days of summer, inspired by events, discussions and 'philosophical' musings that took place in the studio during the recording of the album. We wanted to completely let loose with the track, combining psych- garage wig outs with elements of our favourite disco and dance boogie tracks, such as Luther Davis Group's 'You Can Be A Star' and Rita Lee's 'Chega Mais'. The lyrics also fuse together an anecdotal story of spotting an unaccompanied case on a train platform, and the allegorical discussions and theories that followed. This included topics ranging from Schrodingers Cat to James and the Giant Peach!”

Silver Dollar Moment is out 16 February via Heavenly Recordings.
