New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
ORION, founder and leader of the viral breakout band, The Orion Experience, announced today the release of his first single & video, "The Left Hand Path" from his upcoming 2023 sophomore solo album, Tragic Magic, is out today on all digital platforms.
A departure from the danceable beats and power pop grooves that brought The Orion Experience
more than 70 million streams of the track, "The Cult of Dionysus" on Spotify and a worldwide fanbase, ORION is a more enigmatic, mysterious (albeit glamorous) creature from another time. Think of his solo alter ego as a reincarnation of a long-forgotten trickster God, writer of music, maker of mischief, Piscean poet, chaos wizard and love-cursed fool.
Inspired by other musical chaos wizards The Doors, The Moody Blues
and Syd Barrett, "The Left Hand Path" attempts to evoke more than just a song, but a vision. The opening credits of a 1960's Satanic-Panic film come to mind as the hypnotic baseline casts its spell. By the time the bridge hits, you are teleported to a secret ritual, dancing wildly around a witch's bonfire.
