Listening Post

The Orielles have a new track, and it’s probably time to stop talking about how young they are

Listen to the trio's new track 'Sugar Tastes Like Salt'

All anyone could talk about when The Orielles first emerged a couple of years back was their young age. In fairness, they did appear have an almost unnatural songwriting wisdom given their years (14/15) at the time.

But, now it’s time to move on from that. The Halifax threesome – Sidonie B Hand-Halford, Esmé Dee Hand-Halford and Henry Carlyle Wade – have signed with Heavenly Recordings and recorded a bunch of new material.

They’ve just shared a new track, it’s called ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ – an 8-minute Gang of Four-style lick driven by an old disco beat which turns into something all together more feral.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
