Defiant in the face of existential dread, The Orielles were always going to approach their second album with
nothing but stellar levels of intent. Disco Volador sees the 4-piece push their sonic horizon to its outer limits
as astral travellers, hitching a ride on the melodic skyway to evade the space-time continuum through a sharpcollection of progressive strato-pop symphonies.

“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.”

Voyaging through cinematic samba, 70s disco, deep funk boogies, danceable grooves and even tripping on
90s acid house, Disco Volador is set to propel The Orielles spinning into a higher zero-gravity orbit. Written
and recorded in just 12 months, it captures the warp-speed momentum of their post-Silver Dollar Moment
debut album success; an unforgettable summer touring, playing festivals like Green Man and bluedot, and
deepening their bond whilst witnessing the sets of their heroes Stereolab, Mogwai, and Four Tet. Disco
Volador’s library catalogue vibes stem from a band lapping up and widening their pool of musical discovery
whether nodding to Italian film score maestros Sandro Brugnolini and Piero Umiliani, or the Middle Eastern tones of Khruangbin and Altin Gün. “All the influences we had when writing this record were present when we recorded it, so we completely understood what we wanted this album to feel like and could bring that to fruition,” tells drummer, Sid. “This is the sound of where we are at, right now.”
