Indie pop songstress Orla Gartland returns today with a fiery new single, “Figure It Out” – listen to the track HERE. Oscillating boldly between jarring and tame, the track boasts impassioned vocals that build in restlessness before exploding into a cacophony of crunching guitars and exasperated heartache. “Figure It Out” is the second single off of Orla’s upcoming EP, Freckle Season, due out February 21, 2020. The highly anticipated follow up to 2019’s Why Am I Like This?, Freckle Season also features previous single “Did It To Myself,” which has garnered over 780K+ streams across all platforms since its release.
“I wrote ‘Figure It Out’ about desperately needing space – about asking for it, about being ignored and hoping the other person would eventually read between the lines,” says Orla. “The verses detail the frustration of us politely circling around one another in the aftermath of the break up, seeing each other at a New Year’s party, making conversation here and there… and then the tension builds towards the chorus and I just lose it. I felt angry one second and calm the next. I wanted the contrast in emotion between these two parts of the song to feel like night and day.
