about

In the vast universe of musical genres and movements, Rorq sits somewhere inside a rotating tetrahedron that projects nostalgic vignettes from a world soaked in synths and VHS fuzz. "ORB," Rorq's first standalone single, was an 18 minute monolith that drew the attention of vaporwave kids and experimental elitists alike. While there is a definite draw from the 80s in Rorq's work, it maintains an otherworldly quality as well. Rorq cites artists such as Oneohtrix Point Never and The Sight Below as influences, noting their ability to create rich, alien environments with sound.
"RUNNER," while much shorter than "ORB," capitalizes on songwriting and Rorq's ability to cover a great deal of sonic ground regardless of parameters. It's a beat-driven track at first, laying down a standard synthwave groove. Then, it opens up into an ambient piece, which finally reforms as a melange of synth arpeggios resolve. Meant to tell the tale of a cyborg nomad, "RUNNER" imbues its runtime with a sense of scale and grandeur.
