Orla Gartland Returns To Solo Duties With ‘Little Chaos’

Ahead of an intimate UK tour...

Irish songwriter Orla Gartland has shared new single ‘Little Chaos’.

The artist has been working as one-quarter of bedroom pop supergroup FIZZ, playing some huge dates across the land. Next week she gets back to solo duties, kicking off an intimate tour of the UK and Ireland.

Alongside this, Orla has shared solo single ‘Little Chaos’. Out now, the lyrics deal with the struggle of trying to show-up in a relationship, and her desire for emotional truth.

As ever, Orla’s magical way with melody makes for enchanting listening, as she sings: “I struggle saying just how much I really love you / You can thank my mom for that”.

Out now on her own New Friends imprint, the Dublin-born songwriter comments:

“I think a lot about how to move through the world alongside a partner and for a long time I wanted to show up in relationships as easy-going & palatable, never taking up too much space – now I can’t think of anything worse. I can be loud, funny, clumsy, loyal, intelligent, annoying, caring, angry; this song is about showing up as all of it, all at once. I think dropping the act and showing your true self feels like the most vulnerable thing you can do.”

The video for ‘Little Chaos’ is out now, shot by emerging Danish director Anne-Sofie Lindgaard. 

Tune in ow.
