Heavenly Recordings signees The Orielles have shared two new singles ‘Bobbi’s Second World’ and Peggy Gou cover, ‘It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)’ - listen below.
have shared a stunning new single 'Bobbi's Second World'
alongside a colourful funk cover of 'It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)'
by Peggy Gou. The group is made up of sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade - they've recently made keyboardist, Alex Stephens of Strawberry Guy
fame a fully ranked member of the band - the new single marks this occasion.
Talking about the new track the band had this to say: "Bobbi's Second World, written with the addition of a new member on keys, exhibits an explosion of new sounds and ideas that came to fruition after a long summer of playing festivals and taking inspiration from music that made us dance. It centres around the story of a cat named Bobbi who, in order to become a lady, has to experience the extremities of two complex and differing realities- situated in her front and back gardens respectively. The eccentric instrumentation, influenced by northern soul, post-punk and funk music, matches the quirkiness of the lyrics to create a song that concerns a young cats maturity whilst displaying a certain maturity in the music itself. After noticing a passion for songs that make us emotional; want to dance and quite literally 'forget', we decided to cover one of Peggy Gou's latest floor fillers, 'Itgehane aka It Makes You Forget' hoping that we could evoke the aforementioned qualities of music within other listeners!"
