Sonja Sleator returns with new single, Orion with an accompanying video shot and produced by the artist on Achill Island on Ireland’s west coast. The single and video will be released on all channels on November 8th 2019.
Sleator describes the track as a response to the loss of an idol:
“The lyrics are fairly clear, I think. But it’s not just about one thing that happened for me and how I was affected by it. For anyone who has looked up to a person, publicly or privately, if the mask slips and that person isn’t who you thought they were it feels like a loss. Orion is about dealing with that feeling and sort of saying to that person, ‘what the hell were you thinking?’”
