Brooklyn-based artist Orion Sun has released a brand new EP, ‘Getaway’.
The new collection comes alongside a visual for ‘Pressure’, which you can check out below.
Speaking about the track, she explains: “‘Pressure’ is a confession. I’m strong and weak. I don’t like to complain but I do sometimes. This is just expressing the doubts and fears and weight that I carry. I’m learning to share some of the burden in a healthy and productive way. My life’s goal is to strive for lightness. I wanna be a featherweight champion lol. Light and free.”
On the EP, she continues: “The ‘Getaway’ EP was written during my time in quarantine and served as a form of escapism – not just from where I was physically in the world, but from some of my emotions I was feeling as well. In June of 2020 I released a song called ‘Mama’s Baby,’ which talked about my experience with police brutality in Philadelphia. Experiencing that and seeing my community plagued with covid simultaneously led me to feel that the world was a dangerous place to be. This EP was born from that. The yearning to get out and get away. The want to learn more, to grow more, to love more, and to evolve.”
