Orbiting is an expansive yet cosy trip-hop-pop gem, where Fable’s heavenly vocals glide across the mammoth yet serene bassline that is sonically reminiscent of the legendary Portishead – and makes for the perfect accompaniment to any Naim system.

Confirming Fable’s status as one of the most exciting emerging artists, the spellbinding single has already received its world premiere on BBC Radio 6 Music, as a top new-music pick on Chris Hawkins’ morning show. This follows a wave of acclaim from music media, including Q, The Guardian and Wonderland, for last year’s Naim Records debut single, Thirsty.

Orbiting highlights Fable’s versatility and searing songwriting. As she explains: Orbiting is quite literally and metaphorically, an observation of the earth from far away. It takes a great big step back and sees that everything is intertwined on this little marble hurtling through infinite space. In a world that's more connected than ever digitally, I can't help but feel we have been segregated in every other sense.”
