Canadian singer-songwriter has shared a video for her new track “only hanging out cause i’m lonely,” and she’s even given Indie88 some exclusive behind-the-scenes (BTS) photos.
“Dating can be weird and confusing,” Porat explains of the track. “Our dependency on technology isolates us and makes us crave companionship, sometimes for the wrong reasons. ‘Only Hanging Out Cause I’m Lonely’ was written about that struggle. Shoutout to all the guys I dated for way too long for the sake of dating. This one’s for you.”
“Only hanging out cause i’m lonely” is a bubbly indie pop track with vulnerable, relatable lyrics as Porat sings lines like, “I’m not ready to feel new emotions/ I’m high off this moment/ And all the attention.” The accompanying playful Iris Kim-directed video has a vintage feel to it as Porat, completely uninterested, watches the futile efforts from three love-struck suitors.
