The Orielles announce ‘Disco Volador’ (watch “Come Down on Jupiter” video)

UK group The Orielles will be back with their second album, Disco Volador, on February 28 via Heavenly. Like their 2018 single “Bobbi’s Second World” (which finds its way onto this album), the album finds the group continuing to explore the dancier side of indie rock and post punk. “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,” says bassist and singer, Esme. “But it is an album of escape; if I went to space, I might not come back.” First single “Come Down on Jupiter” is a jazzy, light appetizer for the album, and its video — shot at Arments pie & mash shop in Kennington, London — replays a single moment over and over to heightened dramatic tension. Tea and toast are involved. Watch that below.

The Orielles will be in the U.S. next year for SXSW and hopefully they’ll play a few other shows outside of Austin while here. Meanwhile, they’ve got UK shows in February and early March. All dates are listed below.
