Dublin singer-songwriter-producer Orla Gartland released her new single “More Like You.”
The conversational song addresses feelings of insecurity and inferiority. “Everyone compares themselves to other people right? “More Like You’” was born from a petty jealousy I have for my best friend’s other best friend. She’s someone who I only ever heard good things about, someone I wanted to hate until I met her and – of course – I didn’t. I loved her,” explains Gartland.
Relatable lyrics such as “I heard it from a woman on the internet, she told me to eat well and try to love myself then maybe I won’t wish that I was someone else,” feed the track’s rhythmic pulse and effortlessly lead to its engaging builds.
“More Like You” and “Pretending” follow Gartland’s 2019 EP’s “Why Am I Like This?” and “Freckle Season.” Gartland’s songs have amassed over 45 million streams and more than 750,000 Spotify monthly listeners. She has been compared to artists such as Stevie Nicks, St. Vincent, Regina Spektor and HAIM.
