Her songs feature spacey beats that mold perfectly to the name Orion Sun and sing of stories that you quickly find yourself relating to, like the catchy rhythms and lovestruck lyrics to Mango (a personal favorite.) A few minutes listening and you’ll find her music takes you away like a vintage bottle of Calgon - and that’s just her intention.

“I just want to make things that can force you to not be present in a way. I like music that has that escape. So when I’m composing beats, it’s a lot about environment for me, and it’s very visual.'“ - via interview with WXPN.
