"[My favourite album of 2020 was] The Orielles, Disco Volador. I found it on Spotify via Come On Down Jupiter appearing in my playlist and keep listening to it again and again, right up my street musically." - Annabella Coldrick, CEO of Music Manager Forum

"The title of this English indie band's second album Disco Volador translates to Disco Flying, I guess, and though it may not make sense on the page, put on this track and tell me you're not out of your chair within fifteen seconds. There are hints of early '90s rave-inflected Britpop in here, put through a Stereolab filter and aimed for the dancefloor. The Orielles ask "Can you re-align the boundaries of my sensory home," and while I have no idea what that even means, I lean toward yes." - Dave Holmes for Esquire

"From striking artwork via the wild, sprightly theme tune 'Space Samba' that caps the album off in a tsunami of bongos and guitar distortion, The Orielles succeed in painting a vivid world of colour and flavour to get lost in."- Alex Cabre for DIY

"The Orielles have built a reputation being a weird and wonderful band, who conjure up colourful narratives with their off-the-wall music."- Jasleen Dhindsa for Dork

Clash Review

The Guardian: "The Halifax band feel like the closest thing we have to a contemporary Stereolab: as sharp as they are spacey, at home with psychedelic wooze and seductively chugging guitar pop." (Laura Snapes)

Stereogum: “Disco Volador’s opening track and lead single, “Come Down On Jupiter,” begins as a languid shuffle, but before long it has exploded into guitar-pop bliss. And then suddenly it’s something like outer-space disco rock. As the five-minute runtime unfolds, the transformations continue to be as abundant as the hooks.”

Paste Magazine: “The constantly shifting track ends up sitting between the progressive ‘90s recordings of Stereolab and more contemporary jam groups like King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard."

Gigwise: “Despondent and dreamy, 'Come Down On Jupiter' is a classically sublime Orielles tune with otherworldly synths and joyful vocal yips and exclamations.”
