New Release: Lorkin O’Reilly – Marriage Material

Lorkin O’Reilly – Marriage Material OUT NOW

It’s an intimate album that feels like a whisper on the skin.

Louder Than War

The second full-length album by Lorkin O’Reilly is out now

Almost three years since the singer-songwriter released his debut album Heaven Depends, Lorkin O’Reilly returns with treasure trove of powerful reflections.

Marriage Material examines themes of deep love, family ties, and broken vows. It was recorded mostly at home in Catskill, New York in 2020, and calls on Lorkin O’Reilly’s extended network of musical brethren for support, with appearances by Kenny Siegel (Old Soul Studios), Matthew Cullen (Ultraam), Sam Smith, Will Bryant, Lee Falco, Felix M-B, and Laura Quirke (Lemoncello). The songs amble with intent through the halls of memory; unafraid to lament, bear teeth, or poke fun as needed; as the artist tries honestly to see the future in consideration of his recent past. After emigrating to America at eighteen and marrying at a young age to later separating from his wife, then finally becoming a citizen; Marriage Material is a story told with quiet hope, recognizing that familial relationships are the building blocks of everything.

We are so proud to present this new album to you. Listen to Marriage Material however you like to do that. Buy or stream it, add it to your playlists, please click those little hearts everywhere you see it and follow Lorkin O’Reilly. Thank you so much XOTL

“…for those who are able to identify with Sternberg, Then I Try Some More has the potential to be life-savingly relatable.” Pitchfork


“Sternberg has a way with simple stories and melodies that feel eternal…” Stereogum


“Sternberg’s music is upfront in its need for human connection. Then I Try Some More reveals the very maw of their sadness…” The FADER


“…these are their feelings, their truth, we can only sit back, listen and be thankful that Joanna is willing to share this with the world.” For The Rabbits


“New York-based singer Joanna Sternberg makes quirky, playful folk songs that recall The Moldy Peaches.” NPR


“For a debut, Joanna Sternberg’s Then I Try Some More conceals no raw nerves — everything is placed on the line.” Exclaim!


“…Sternberg barely fills the space around them, their tempered half-thoughts drifting in and out of focus, like bursts of bright sunlight through stale bedroom air.” Gold Flake Paint


“…Sternberg’s voice shines here, wavering to deliver the perfect amount of emotional vulnerability that we all long for.” Uproxx


“Sternberg sounds a bit like another Joanna—Newsom, that is, whose playful freak-folk attracted a cult following in the early 2000s. Sternberg wields similarly whimsical, barebones arrangements with that same childlike attitude.” Paste


“…heart-wrenching without being over the top.” Brooklyn Vegan


“Sternberg’s upcoming new album, Then I Try Some More, simultaneously reflects the pain of being viewed as “other” by most of the world and provides a source of strength and solace for those with similar struggles.” Spotify
