'Come Down On Jupiter' is the intergalactic taste of new material

The Orielles announce their second album this morning with a new single 'Come Down On Jupiter'. Their second LP will be titled Disco Volador and lands 28 February 2020 via Heavenly Recordings. 

The new song lands alongside a grainy video of the band at a greasy spoon on Groundhog Day. Deadpan and steadfastly ignoring the toast brought to them, Esme, Sid and Alex sit and wait on guitarist Henry, who bowls into the caff only to spill his cup of coffee over and over again. See it and hear the new tune here:

Despondent and dreamy, 'Come Down On Jupiter' is a classically sublime Orielles tune with otherworldly synths and joyful vocal yips and exclamations. According to the band, it's "a narrative that soundtracks a space flight," and it'll be the opening track on Februrary's Disco Volador.

Travelling onwards from this initial space jaunt, the album will explore the outer reaches of the stratosphere: "It is an album of escape; if I went to space, I might not come back."
