Earlier this year, Halifax’s THE ORIELLES released their second album, Disco Volador and boy was it celebrated. In fact, the Strand Records staff enjoyed a shop outing to see the band perform at the Sugarmill in Stoke-on-Trent and it was desperately exciting.
In broad terms, the sound is ‘cosmic pop’ but this does not really do justice to the sheer eclecticism of Disco Volador‘s adventurous aural landscape. This ambitious album feels like a voyage into the past, present and future of music … particularly the future. The LP is a fusion of funk, disco, space rock, library music, Balearic beats, dream pop and samba with the spirit of Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem also present.
The song structures often feel quite unconventional, with the listener unable to anticipate the twists and turns particular tracks will take. The experience is groovy and fun. Just dig that astral plane and check out the wonderful Space Samba
