“I wrote a song every day in May and ‘Did It To Myself’ was song no. 1. Up until now, I’ve resisted writing honestly about love and relationships. But at this point, I was in the throes of the first real heartbreak I’d ever felt and writing had become a crutch, something to help me wrap my head around it all.” – Orla Gartland

‘Did It To Myself’ tells a regretful tale of a frustrated young woman who struggles to cope with the absence of her significant other.

The self-examining tune contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and multi-layered instrumentation flavored with alternative and indie-pop elements.

“The song flickers between feelings of regret, denial, and self-sabotage. Carrying around the weight of it was made harder knowing that there was no one else to blame. I demoed the song in my bedroom and brought it to the studio a few weeks later. My collaborator Tom and I kept a lot of the original parts and made sure not to overcook it, retaining the scrappy, desperate feeling it had from the start.” – Orla Gartland

“I woke up to an empty bed, I took a walk to clear my head. I wished you were there instead, but then I shook it off. What the hell did I use to do? I’m even starting to speak like you. And now, you’re living in my memory, living in my mouth, living in the four f**king walls of my house.” – lyrics
