Rising Dublin singer Orla Gartland unleashes her long awaited debut album ‘Woman on the Internet‘
Woman on the Internet features the singles “More Like You”, “Pretending”, “Zombie!”, “Do You Mind?”, and “You’re Not Special, Babe”, and finds Gartland deliberately putting herself front and centre of its creation and lyrical content.
Woman on the Internet represents a huge step forward for the 25-year-old. Today she cites Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, and Strange Mercy-era St. Vincent as being particularly influential reference points, but the results are utterly unique, finding Gartland moving between alt-rock, punk, folk, and synth-flecked pop, with a succession of inventive arrangements and insightful observations.
Gartland shares the video for the album’s opening track “Things That I’ve Learned”, which sees her imparting hard-won wisdom over complex, clipped percussion, staccato guitars and close vocal harmonies including, “Take up all the space even the when you think you don’t deserve it,” and “Say what’s on your mind, every single time, don’t regret it.” Watch the self-filmed bedroom video below.
