Orkid aka Matilda Melin from Sweden’s far north continues to amaze with every release. Personifying quintessential indie-electro-pop, it’s easy to see why people are falling for Orkid’s addictive and exciting sound. Her new straight-talking single ‘Obvious’, co-penned with U.S. chart topper Lucas Nord, is yet another exhilarating and real statement in her career. Only young, Orkid stands to create waves both sonically and lyrically, continuing to produce organic and exciting material.
“This song is about the harsh reality of relationships with people. There’s nothing worse than being around someone who makes you feel lonely. You want to see the good in them, but in the end you see them for who they really are. You can’t connect, and you keeping pushing shit up hill, but it’s not genuine from their side. It’s like it won’t even hurt for them to say goodbye and you’re hanging out for all the wrong reasons. So this is kind of a way of saying (to yourself mostly) – obviously we don’t fit. It’s pretty obvious right?” – Orkid
