“There’s nothing wasted on this song… and this simplicity is what makes it shine.”
“Welcome to the world Orlean. This is a lovely opening statement.”
Dom Alessio (triple j).
Orlean is the vocal and electronic music project of Terry Mann and Bella Li. A studio project, there are no shows planned until demand demands. Instead, their recorded music will pave their way.
Today Pilerats have premiered their video for debut single “Faster”. Made by Mann, the clip is manipulated footage from an ECG of a beating heart. Duplicating the image results in a hypnotising rabbit hole, some sort of grotesque yet beautiful fluid Rorschach test. He notes that “like anxiety, ‘Faster’ is not happy or sad. It’s also not frantic and hectic like a panic attack. It’s an ongoing pressure, a weight, a confusion, a lack of control, an unknown.”
Says Li of the track: “I like the pacing of the song, and how the lyrics are open-ended… how ominous and incantatory the vocals are.”
Intensity and detachment; robotic but human; current yet nostalgic… Orlean marry polar opposites into sophisticated pop gems.
