The Orielles have announced details of their second album, 'Disco Volador'

The Orielles have announced details of their second album.

Titled 'Disco Volador', the full length is set to arrive on 28th February 2020, following up on 2018's debut 'Silver Dollar Moment'.

“Its literal interpretation from Spanish means flying disc but everyone experiences things differently. Disco Volador could be a frisbee, a UFO, an alien nightclub or how you feel when you fly; what happens to your body physically or that euphoric buzz from a great party,” suggests bassist and singer, Esme. “But it is an album of escape; if I went to space, I might not come back.”

It's being previewed by the first track to be released from the album, 'Come Down Jupiter'. Esme explains: "'Come Down On Jupiter' is as much a song as it is a narrative that soundtracks a space flight, right through from the ominous introductory sounds of the grand piano to the Lizzie Mercier Descloux -esque ‘thrift shop cowboys’ group chants towards the end, which diffuse the tension of the wig out preceding it."

The song arrives alongside a video directed by Rose Hendry and filmed at Arments pie & mash shop in Kennington, London.

Talking about the video, Rose said: "When I first heard the track I was immediately transported into some sort of mystery melodrama from another era, with a strong dose of something psychedelic. This was my starting point, alongside an image by photographer, Ralph Gibson, of a cup of tea sitting on a beige table, bathed in warm sunlight with a plastic spoon resting against the lip. I enjoyed the idea of centring the video around an incident with a cup of tea - that felt dramatic to me - something “mundane” becoming something dramatic. I wanted to encapsulate the playful psychedelia in a psychological and structural way as opposed to the ‘pastiched to death’ VW campervan kind of way. Add to that toast and the rest developed from there."

Check out the video for 'Come Down On Juptier' below.
