WHEN: New EP – 25.03.2016
WHERE: Art Is Hard
It’s nice to hear new bands producing music that showcases their talents while also displaying just a little smidge of their potential too. The Orielles are a three piece band from Yorkshire and this is their latest single Jobin. These guys formed after meeting at a house party which is a pretty traditional setting for all ideas of forming band to take place – I think I’m currently in about five bands right now. After enjoying a very successful 2015 The Orielles have just released their new EP also titled Jobin on the 25th March, which means that this review of this track is relevant as hell. Awesome.
Jobin is a wonderful collision of instruments which bring together elements of surf rock and pop to deliver something that sounds easy going but also full of depth. The jangly guitar riffs and huge echo-y harmonies are synonymous with the surf rock genre but The Orielles do a great job of keeping everything heavily layered with various guitar riffs, chords and melodies to ensure that they’re not “just another surf rock band”. There’s also a hint of harmony in the background too, converting this tune into one hell of a musical onion.
The Orielles have got their 2016 off to a great start with Jobin. The mix of surf rock with other genres creates a little more personalised while still retaining a lot of genre’s feel good vibes and sunny instrumentation. It’s a great little tune, and I’m sure the EP is just as good too.
