The Orielles: Bobbi's Second World // It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)

Not to be confused with the doo-wop vocal group of the late 1940s whose name resonates similar, Liverpool's The Orielles come up with a refreshed mindset and a boosted lineup, upgraded by the addition of new member, Alex Stephens, on keys, who joins sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford, and their best friend Henry Carlyle Wade as a full member of the band.

Bobbi's Second World, the brand new single by The Orielles, is a soulful post punk number with fresh sound and excellent production, subtly reminiscent of the dance punk energy of ESG and the boundless vigor of The Happy Mondays. The band's own words describe the song accurately: "Bobbi's Second World (...) 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 centers 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."

B-side, It Makes You Forget (Itgehane), is an odd cover of a song by South Korean electronic music artist, Peggy Gou, completely reworked and re-imagined through the band's elegant indie filters, but maintaining the original's uncommon quirkiness.

After the momentous breakthrough that Silver Dollar Moment was, The Orielles keep sounding firm and zealous to move ahead, and based on the quality and fineness of their new single, there's undeniably a lot more to expect from this fine young act.

Bobbi's Second World b/w It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) is out now on the iconic Heavenly Recordings.
