Orla Gartland

By Resonate | November 18, 2020

With her debut album anticipated in 2021, Dublin born singer-songwriter Orla Gartland recently released her new single Pretending. The song poetically narrates the internal exhaustion of being at a party and playing a part in the social dynamic of the event. Although parties may be a distant memory, many of us can relate to finding the balance between being true to ourselves and wearing the people pleaser mask. Originally a song she wrote in 2019, lockdown enabled Gartland to revisit the lyrics and develop this piece, ushering in a mood rich in reflection. Gone are the days of the breakup songs and instead music such as Hartland’s, allows for a more potent self-analysis.
