Fast-rising Dublin singer-songwriter-producer Orla Gartland debut album Woman on the Internet, released on August 20, 2021 via her own label New Friends distributed via The Orchard, gained positive review from those like NME or The Guardian: a headlong dive into twentysomething life, they wrote about the record in the four star review. Featuring previously released singles More Like You and Zombie!, Woman on the Internet is the culmination of years of music making, live shows and Gartland honing her production skills.
Of announcing her debut album, Gartland shares: “Something clicked into place last year – I grew into my role as a producer and lyrically I knew what I wanted to say. Although this album was made in 2020 it isn’t laced with lockdown blues – it feels more like the soundtrack of new time to me; a sunnier time, a more hopeful time. I’m so proud of this record!”
Woman on the Internet will follow Gartland’s first two acclaimed EPs, 2019’s Why Am I Like This? and the follow up Freckle Season, which was released in February last year. Born and raised in Dublin, Gartland started writing songs when she was 14 years old. Unable to convince any of the 18+ local pubs and venues to let her perform, she honed her craft online, before heading out on tour the day she finished school. On her return she packed her bags and moved to London, spending the next few years writing, recording, touring and gathering fans apace.
