Multifaceted Electro-Indie Singer-Songwriter Portair Announces New EP; Shares “Out Of Focus”
September 20, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Alternative singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, graphic designer/artist, and producer Portair will release his second EP, The Light That Breaks, on January 14th. A renewed search for meaning drove much of his first EP, The Light That Gives, released earlier this summer. With The Ice that Breaks, he’s moved on from a breakup with organized religion to making up for lost time. “I wanted them to feel somewhat connected—not two separate bodies of work,” says the singer/songwriter/producer. “’The Light That Gives’ is the sun that grows a plant from a seed. ‘The Ice That Breaks’ is where all of a sudden you reach a certain age and wonder, how do I live my best life with what I’ve got?”
Today, the Sydney-born and Los Angeles-based storyteller shares his airy, electro-folk new single, “Out Of Focus.” He explains, “This song is written about a long-distance relationship and the struggles that come with that. It’s about the beautiful feeling of a new love when you find it for the first time. It is a hopeful song about holding on even in the most difficult of times. Billions of people search and long for a love that we are so lucky to have found. Let’s do everything in our power to not lose focus of that.”

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.” Stay tuned for more to come from Portair soon.
