Orion Sun is a Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter, musician and producer. Two years after the release of the debut album Hold Space for Me and 2021’s single “Concrete“ (produced by Rostam Batmanglij), she’s back with a new EP called Getaway which is out now via Mom+Pop.
According to the press release, The ‘Getaway’ project ushers in a new chapter for Orion Sun artistically and personally; one that is shaped by her own journey of self-discovery and healing. She explains, “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.”
