THE ORIELLES made a bold and confident statement last month with the release of their debut single ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’; a track which delivered ambition, promise and heaps of talent across an incredible eight and a half minutes.
The Halifax trio are now back with their second offering and it’s another certified banger. More direct and punchy than its predecessor, ‘I Only Bought It For The Bottle’ is a deliriously infectious and dance-able piece of off-kilter pop which grabs your attention from the get-go. Dreamy yet nonchalant in delivery, the lead vocals are joined by jangly guitars, deliciously elastic basslines and hook-laden choruses.
The band said: “The track is loosely based upon Nicolas Winding Refn film The Neon Demon as it talks about the idea of how beauty has become a currency and that we no longer desire substance, yet seek things based on appearance and face value. The microcosm of this idea comes through the lyrics which explain a story of how the subject bought a bottle because it looked really nice and tasty but actually it tasted like shit.”
