It’s her lyricism that is the star of the show. Her biting self-examination resides at the core of every track and lays her every flaw and insecurity for all to see.


Orla Gartland’s debut is an intricate, carefully-constructed collection, blending together indie-pop, folk and alternative rock.

The Line of Best Fit

She’s a glistening popstar; a proficient musician; a scrupulous producer. Orla Gartland is exactly where she’s meant to be.

The Observer

This beautifully crafted debut spans pop-punk to indie rock, with knife-sharp lyrics all the way.


Overall, there is a cohesive narrative to the album which is easy to follow yet it is comprised of songs that stand up on their own without needing the context of the rest of the record to make them great.

Similar aos trabalhos da canadense, Woman on the Internet é uma jornada que fala sobre essa conturbada transição entre a adolescência e a idade adulta, de tomarmos as rédeas da própria vida sem qualquer manual de ... read more
Although this album does not present anything new and innovative, it is still very enjoyable to listen to.
EN: "Woman on the Internet" begins with a sensational track and ends with a superior track, leaving the rest of the album to be desired. The lyricism is quite smooth, and matches the feelings Orla wants to convey, however, the repetitive experimentation that takes place throughout Woman on the Internet is simply... decadent. However, the album is great pop, as well as not leaving indie pop aside. Although it is monotonous, certain passages are really reflective. Orla just doesn't seem ... read more
