Feeling sad? Orlando Gloom can relate. The new project, by Winnipeg‘s Dave Shaw (who you may know as Glass Random or Camp David), is a clever and brilliantly executed exploration of negative emotions. In the case of “Nervous Conditions,” fear of being loved, fear of being bored and fear of being wrong. But just as the narrator finds a friend who can help him through, this song’s breezy, upbeat synths and comforting vocal tone can transport your troubles away for a while.
The song and its EP, An Evening with Orlando, are available for pay-what-you-can on Bandcamp.
