Orellana is the Cinematic Post-Rock project of Martyn Jackson.
In 2013 Jackson released his debut album "Home" under his own name, and since then has worked in various other projects from fronting a metal band to composing for TV. After playing only a handful of shows to support the release of "Home", Jackson decided to take a break from writing Post-Rock to focus more on neo-classical composition minimalist piano pieces. This resulted in the release of Bedroom Ghosts, an collection of short piano pieces based around repetition and simplicity melodies.
In late 2016 Jackson decided to combine both Post-Rock and his minimalist piano pieces to create his next full length album "52".
Jackson's experiences over the past few years have lead him to take great interest in the natural world, and so “52” tells the story of The Loneliest Whale in the World, and its search for a family and companionship. It is a soundtrack to an imagined film, and a situation we can all relate to; being alone and calling out for loved ones only to be left unheard.

It's a return to the a more conventional song format for Par, with a track that combines the voice and guitar of Alfonsina with a minimalist beat, climatic synths and the deep groove of the bass.

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
