Ordley is an Australian newcomer who is crafting a unique blend of indie-dance/melodic-house music that can be likened to a mix between Fred Again, Duskus and Tourist.
Over the last few months Ordley has been working on a collection of new music that he plans to share with us over the coming months. He’s giving us the first taste of those this week with the invigorating sounds of new single ‘we’re the last to leave’, which as he reveals below is a song about finding the resilience to keep everything moving forward, no matter what life puts in your way.
Listen to 'We're The Last To Leave' :
Talking about the song, Ordley say:
“This is a song about conveying the tension from how we wish life would be and how it actually is, and the strains this can place on our romantic relationships as we find the resilience to keep going.
I wrote and produced this song in one morning after hearing a news segment about young people’s employment still not recovering after the pandemic, and the anxiety this was bringing to them. This was all too close to home for me as an artist, and that emotion went straight into this record.
Musically, it’s a fun, chill record. Fast and dancey. I think the percussion has a UK rave feel, keeping the momentum super high and the vocals are showcasing my fun and playful nature.”
‘We’re the last to leave’ is available everywhere now!
