Orchid Mantis faces existential crisis on “No One Else Around”

“No One Else Around” is the second single taken from Orchid Mantis‘ upcoming EP, light as leaving, due out September 17 on Z Tapes.

After three consecutive full albums, Atlanta-based experimental and moody lo-fi artist Thomas Howard, better known as Orchid Mantis, has decided to release two small collections of songs. The first one, light as leaving, compares life to a series of movings and leavings. Following up on the Josh Augustin-assisted lead single “Where You Are“, Howard is back with “No One Else Around”, a forlorn and existential track that actually deals with loneliness, loss, and isolation; the consequences of this constant movement.
