The Orielles’ guitarist Henry takes over the Band on the Wall bar for a delicious DJ set following the Pip Blom show. Entry is free, so come on down.
Hailing from Halifax, The Orielles are sisters Sidonie B and Esmé Dee Hand Halford, guitarist Henry Carlyle Wade and keys player Alex Stephens, whom they met at a house party just a few years ago. The then teenagers bonded over their shared love of alternative US bands from the 90s such as Sonic Youth & Pixies as well as pioneering filmmakers including Quentin Tarantino (The Orielles have cited his work in their songs and consider his work a major lyrical and aesthetical influence). Keen proponents of the DIY aesthetic, they learned their instruments on the road through gigging and the band have spent the past few years polishing their sound, with a steady string of singles previously released.
