Blue Collar, Alternative Hip-Hop artist Chris Orrick has just shared his brooding new video “Out To Sea,” today with Passion Of The Weiss along with the announcement of his upcoming album, also titled Out To Sea, out May 24th via Mello Music Group. The video takes the audience on an introspective journey with the artist while he is literally “out to sea,” aimlessly wandering a beach and drifting on a boat that seems to be going nowhere. Of the single, Chris describes the meaning behind it as “being mentally ‘out to sea’, disconnected from society/the internet.”
 
Out to Sea began without any overarching ideas—writing as a way of figuring out what he needed to say and as a form of catharsis. Themes of stormy weather and disastrous climate started to materialize from the fog of word.  It was an easy leap to link them with mental illness and the diseased discourse that has infected the political climate in the Trump era. Out to Sea is an attempt to communicate beyond reductive binaries—not some naïve both-sides-ism bullshit but a fragile and lasting document sketched through a vale of sadness and a haunted concern for humanity.
