Cory Hueston, singer, songwriter, and former frontman of The Blancos, shifted his energy and began his very first solo project, Hueston, after years of working in his indie-alt duo. Two years later, he released his debut EP Orbs in February and it is the breath of fresh air we needed.
Produced in collaboration with Todd Spadafore and recorded at Love Potion Studios, it is the pinnacle of self reflection and facing your fears to overcome the past and trauma. Track number two on the EP “Eyes Bleed Water” appears to delve into a codependent relationship and a painful breakup. However, in actuality, the song envelops everything we desperately hold on to even though they’re hurting us more.

After one of the toughest years, Hueston emerged like a phoenix from the ashes with this six song EP that is guaranteed to take you on an emotional rollercoaster. The song that names the EP, comes along with a message of embrace. It represents the moment when light starts to shine through while still highlighting the significance of darkness. The lowest moments, the depths of the darkest place, the forgotten corners of your mind, the scariest things that cause you to wake up with a jolt. These are the moments that inspire the journey ahead. The darkness breathes you in so it can spit you back out and let you be renewed. This is “Orbs”.
“To get through it, you need to go through it,” Hueston said. “‘Orbs’ is the moment the sun starts peaking, that moment when the sunrise begins.”
Encompassing atmospheric synth hooks, flawless trap-pop production perfection, and Heuston’s absolutely trademark singing voice and flow, the EP is a must-listen!
