We’re happy to announce a new addition to the Heavenly roster. We’re delighted to sign The Orielles, a three-piece from Halifax. Teenagers Esmé Dee-Hand, Henry Carlyle Wade & Sidonie B Hand.
Label founder Jeff Barrett comments on how the band we’re brought to our attention:
“We got to hear about them by word of month — initially from some of my older pals, namely Joe McKechnie up in Liverpool and Phil Wilson — of June Brides fame — guys that know their stuff — then more recently from some of our bands namely Hooton Tennis Club and The Parrots who The Orielles recently supported on UK tour which is when we all fell in love with them .”
The band are also just as enthused to join the label:
“We are really excited to be working with Heavenly: they have released some of our favourite records and we’re very honoured to be among some amazing bands.
In January the band will join the line-up for our four day event in the Hebden Bridge Trades Club. They have been added to the Friday night bill where they join The Parrots, Hooton Tennis Club and the Heavenly Jukebox for an unmissable Friday night party.
Having previously supported Hooton Tennis Club, the boys have shared their excitement for our latest signing:
“The Orielles played with us at our Liverpool show last Christmas. We watched them from the back of the Kazimier with Bill R-J and we all loved them! The day after the show Harry and Cal rushed to Probe Records to buy their single, Space Doubt. Their recordings are great and they are really great live. We are super happy that they’re part of the Heavenly family!”
Taking place between Thursday 19th & Sunday 22nd of January the event will see live performances from Temples, Amber Arcades, M Craft, Duke Garwood, The Parrots, H Hawkline, Hooton Tennis Club, TOY, Britain & DJ sets from the Heavenly Jukebox.
Event details and tickets can be found at The Trades Club website here.
