We began doing live shows occasionally, but still kept our main focus on songwriting and recording. In 2009 our lineup was reduced to the quartet we are today. This meant a big change. We rearranged the way we played and our creative interaction. In the process we found ourselves letting go of many preconceived notions about what Oriel Joans should/could be.
We suddenly could just play whatever felt meaningful and real. To celebrate this we're making our first official releases this fall. First off is the single 'Knuckles Whiten' + b-side 'I Only Wish To Lay' and at the end of the year we'll present our debut album. Oriel Joans is: Kalle - guitar, keys, vocals Pekka - bass, vocals Madelene - saxophone, flute, percussion, glockenspiel, keys Lars - guitar, drums, vocals If you want to contact us, write to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
