The Orielles - Beam/s
Updated: Sep 22, 2022
Has this lot ever released a bad record? I'd argue no. I am struggling to think of that many bands who can create sounds that are as epic and cinematic as the Orielles. 'Beam/s' is the whole show, taking you on such a journey you'll feel like you've sat through an entire film soundtrack by the time it reaches its climax. Clocking in at a shade under eight minutes long, it covers everything from nineties Indie Power Pop, some hypnotising shoegazing vocals, sweeping orchestral strings, and what I can only describe as a 'Synthesizer-led Space Battle' towards the end. Incredible.
