  • The Great Escape Festival – 2018

    The Great Escape Festival – 2018 The Great Escape Festival – 2018 To paraphrase that Marmite film classic, the streets were alive with the sound of music! Over three long days and nights, Brighton did truly come alive as The Great Escape juggernaut rolled into town for its 13th edition. The festival for new music saw over 500 acts playing in 40-odd venues, representing countries from all around the globe. If you add in the The Alternative Great Escape, and the plethora of events and pop-up performances arranged off the back of TGE and AGE, you’re looking at closer to 1,000 acts in 80-odd venues. Yes, it was mad, but glorious. Helped along by some beautiful mid-May sunshine, somehow within all the chaos, Brightonsfinest were out in force, documenting, commenting, and enjoying what we like to do best. Watch live...
  • The Orielles – Silver Dollar Moment

    The Orielles – Silver Dollar Moment The Orielles – Silver Dollar Moment The Orielles origin story is one that's such a textbook indie band forming story I'm sure many others would like to pretend they had a similar story. Sisters Sid and Esme Hand-Halford met Henry at a house party and formed a band on the same night whilst bonding over an old piano. After meeting, they formed The Orielles and went on to sign to Art is Hard and Circa, they then leaped to Heavenly Records for the release of their debut. They're a band that have all the cool tropes of being in an indie band without any of the nonsense, it all just comes naturally to them....
  • The Orielles – The Hope & Ruin - 14th April 2017

    The Orielles – The Hope & Ruin - 14th April 2016 The Orielles – The Hope & Ruin - 14th April 2017 Before tonight’s show I’m downstairs having dinner with the band at The Hope & Ruin. They seem incredibly calm, slowly sipping a few cans of beer. There don't seem to be any pre-gig nerves, no sense of hyping themselves up or getting into any ‘zone’. After recently releasing their first single through Heavenly Records, the band have gained quite a bit of momentum. They’ve released through other labels before and have quite a selection of singles and EPs. This has slowly but surely been gaining them a very loyal following throughout the country.
  • The Orielles – Interview - 2017

    The Orielles – Interview - 2017 The Orielles – Interview - 2017 I’ve kept my eye on The Orielles for a few years now, seeing them play in Brighton numerous times. After a string of singles and EPs, the band have now signed to Heavenly Records and have released their first single on the label ‘Sugar Tastes Like Salt’ which sees the band at their most refined but also starting to play around with their sound. They’ve started to shift away from the surf-pop tag that has followed them around for so long and are concentrating on developing their songs further. I met up with them in a small pub by Brighton’s train station to talk about the band’s beginnings and their future. They are a few dates into their current UK tour, which will run throughout April, playing dates all over the UK.
