Among her small but very respectable catalogue of songs released so far, new single ‘Between My Teeth’ takes its place as the new jewel in Orla Gartland’s crown.

Pairing sharp, upbeat pop with dark lyrics – which, as we all know, is the best combination of sound and words – ‘Between My Teeth’ is about coping, or attempting to, with the pressures of an emotionally dependent friend.

“It explores the idea of feeling too broken yourself to really help someone else, but feeling too guilty to jump ship”, Gartland explains.

If you’re looking to catch her live, Gartland will be supporting Hudson Taylor on their upcoming European tour, which includes a date at Koko in Camden. She’ll also support Gabrielle Aplin at Union Chapel in Islington on 4 Dec.
