With their highly-anticipated new album landing in just a few weeks, The Orielles have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'The Room' comes accompanied by a stunning self-directed new video, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Beam/s' in previewing their new LP 'Tableau', which is out on the 7th October via Heavenly Recordings.
Speaking about the new offering, they said, "This was the first track for this record, completely randomly and not part of the album sessions. It was recorded in Autumn/Winter of 2020, at Eve Studios. We had spent a day there, just jamming ideas. Obviously we’d spent the past five or six months in lockdown, not really able to spend much time with one another, so we were all bursting with ideas and hadn’t jammed together in so long. Obviously the way we write is very jammy, very reactionary with each other, and we really missed that. Putting us together in this room at Eve Studios, it was magical really. I feel like we wrote, or sketched ideas, for the majority of the record within an hour or two. We were just in this room at Eve with keyboards, modular synths, everything you could ask for, and just wrote loads of ideas. The lyrics were written line-by-line by each of us, randomly, so we muddled them up and picked them up at random. The first lyric was ‘the moon is in the room’, and I believe she got that from a Clarice Lispector novel? The whispering was definitely inspired by bands like Portishead or Art of Noise."
