ORLA GARTLAND Returns with Punchy New Single 'Little Chaos'

Orla Gartland returns with her new punchy single ‘Little Chaos’ and its accompanying video via her own label New Friends. 

The Dublin-born artist describes the track as 'a love song, a giant surrendering’. We witness Orla push past an initial reluctance and attempt to fully break her own walls down - “I struggle saying just how much I really love you / You can thank my mom for that”.

Orla explains: “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.”

“If you really want me / take as I am.”

Accompanying the release of 'Little Chaos' is a music video directed by emerging Danish director Anne-Sofie Lindgaard. A cinematic piece anchored in a domestic space, it furthers Orla's exploration of self within the context of a relationship.
