London based singer-songwriter, Orlando Mollica, is back with an EP that is sure to leave a lasting impression. His latest release, Purple Dog, is a melancholic, folk-tinged indie pop that evokes a sense of sepia-coloured nostalgia and introspection. Drawing from the likes of Elliott Smith, Bon Iver, Jose Gonzalez, Iron and Wine and Nick Drake, Orlando’s music has been lauded by critics for its wistful, evocative lyrics and sparse, acoustic arrangements.

Purple Dog is a captivating musical journey that transcends boundaries, exploring themes of life, love and mortality. From the blind man missing the sight of his mother, the love of a young passer-by, the memories of an old passer-by, to a story of a dog-friend who passed away, and a hanged body flying around in a balloon bouquet, the EP is a deeply personal exploration of fleeting moments and fading memories.

Orlando’s work is proof that the folk music genre has experienced a significant rebirth in recent years. It is evidence of how music can provide comfort and significance in the face of difficulties in life.

Purple Dog is a must-listen for fans of Elliott Smith, Alex G, Bon Iver, Jose Gonzalez, Iron and Wine, Ben Howard, Damien Rice, Lana Del Rey, Novo Amor, Perfume Genius, Patrick Watson, Billie Marten, Nick Drake, and Death Cab for Cutie. With this EP, Orlando Mollica has firmly established himself as a talent to watch out for.
