New Music: Oranj Goodman

Track of the week. This is the kind of talent that still fires my excitement in new music discovery, ten years later. On the surface, this is not a straightforward sound to enjoy; it’s experimental, conceptual and quite bold.

But approach the song with an open mind and you will discover a beautifully warped world where Oranj Goodman blends soul, hip hop, RnB, and dark undertones of trip hop to create something so beautifully sublime.

“Growing up, religion was a big part of my life and it forced me to feel like someone I wasn’t. This song is about assessing how my Christian upbringing has made me feel because of my sexuality, and it’s also me coming out to the world as queer.”
