Orlando Gloom – Only Tell Yourself

Winnipeg‘s Dave Shaw has long been one of the best at creating artful, mournful bedroom pop. He recently announced the end of his Glass Random project with a soaring seven-minute goodbye epic, but don’t worry–he’s already prolifically making music as Orlando Gloom. (And we still can’t get over how perfect a name that is!)

“Only Tell Yourself” is about suitably downtrodden subjects: disengagement with present happiness, death, and the emptiness after. It’s all wrapped up in winsome synth countermelodies, and an undeniable amount of charm.┬áIf only being sad felt as good as this sounds.
