Enigmatic Indie-Pop Singer-Songwriter Portair Announces Debut EP; Shares New Track
March 29, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Alternative singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, graphic designer/artist, and producer Portair is excited to announce his debut EP, The Light That Gives, will be released on June 24, 2021. As a songwriter and a producer, his songs and scores have appeared on networks such as Netflix, NBC, MTV, and CBS, but those were merely experimentations. He elaborates, “When I moved to LA, I wanted to start something organic. This project is all my passions I can express in one cohesive art form.” The result is an alluring introduction to the Sydney-born and Los Angeles-based storyteller, whose earthy folk-pop wades through life’s pain to discover its harmony. The record explores themes of nostalgia, childlike excitement, and curiosity through the lens of Portair’s personal struggles with depression, chronic pain, and upheaval.
LISTEN (AND SHARE) “WHERE THE SUN GOES DOWN”
Today he shares his new single, “Where The Sun Goes Down,” which explores a more reckless escape—from train-jumping in Berlin to drunken nights in Budapest—set to a railroad-track thrum. He explains, “This song is an upbeat, carefree song about living life. It’s a personal account of stories I’ve lived out in my own life and the memories they’ve brought. It’s about not needing a place to call home, except for where you are. Chasing the sun, following it until it goes down, and doing it all again. It’s a missive to people to let go and live. Something that I often have to tell myself. Sometimes when I feel stuck, I look back at everything I’ve done and all the life I’ve lived and it brings me some comfort, knowing that I have followed my gut and given it everything I have.“
Stay tuned for more to come from Portair soon.
