Orion Sun – “dirty dancer”
Back in 2020, the Philadelphia singer Orion Sun released her impressive debut album Hold Space For Me. Last year, she followed that LP with the Rostam-produced single “Concrete.” Next month, Orion Sun will release her new EP Getaway, and she’s just shared the very cool video for its lead single “dirty dancer.”
“dirty dancer” is a gorgeous, dazed track about the kind of infatuation that leaves you stuck thinking about a person even as you’re going about your day-to-day mundanity. On the track, Orion Sun sings languidly over slow-rotating guitars: “Waiting in line at the grocery store/ Waiting for an Uber, thinking of you.” In director Courtney Loo’s video, Orion Sun and a group of dancers move through impeccably composed shots. Orion Sun also just announced her first headlining tour; check out the “dirty dancer” video and the tour dates below.
