The first single taken from the Halifax band’s upcoming debut album Silver Dollar Moment, “Let Your Dogtooth Grow” is a homage to Yorgos Lanthimos’ 2009 film Dogtooth.
Post-dance funk punks The Orielles have a real ear for choruses, as has been demonstrated on sterling past releases “I Only Bought It For The Bottle” and “Sugar Tastes Like Salt”. Once again the group have nailed the brief with a rebellious and celebratory anthem, "Let Your Dogtooth Grow", that sounds like a weirdly wonderful Dum Dum Girls and Those Darlins mash up.
The Orielles are leading the pack of exciting guitar bands from the North alongside the likes of Drahla, Autobahn and Chest Pains and with a growing fanbase and the backing of Heavenly Recordings everything is lining up for them to make a real mark.
Speaking on the track and the inspiration behind it the band said “Let Your Dogtooth Grow was once again recorded and produced by the legend that is Marta 'bueno' Salogni. It features our first (but certainly not last) outing with the Mini Moog, which oscillates freely throughout the closing minute of the track. Furthermore, the outro to the song becomes a melting-pot of our influences, combining guitar riffs reminiscent of Turkish psychedelic musician, Mustafa Ozkent with the Moog Synth riff which is redolent of Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love'.
