Oriion’s ‘nostalgia pop’ is forged from an international wanderlust, the artist’s nomadic reality evident in his music as much of his adult life was spent between LA, NY and Berlin. It was this along with a formative diet of pop icons; Sade, George Michael and Daft Punk among others, which shaped his diverse array of influences that span several decades.
He returns with a new single and what is now his trademark stamp on the world of retro-pop. Working a constant evolvement from his previous two releases, (‘Siren Call’, ‘Ayodele’), his latest offering Nothing At All continues to feed into his creative urge to produce yet another perfectly packaged summer hit. It screams Oriion, yet makes a marked difference to his other songs, truly pushing the boundaries of genre with his blend of contemporary soul and 80s pop.
His previous efforts received praise from such tastemakers as CLASH Magazine (“…his digital pop excursions allow furtive melody to mingle with bold introspection”), The Line of Best Fit (“A musician who’s led a nomadic existence… human of the world ORIION is an intriguing character”) and tmrw magazine (“Oriion adds some dark excitement and urgency to tropical joy”). Hundreds of thousands of streams later, his ever-expanding international fanbase continues to broaden.
