Combining the lulling ambiance of shoegaze with the iconic melodies and vocal prowess of classic American country music, outlaw cowboy, Orville Peck croons about love and loss from the badlands of North America. The resulting sound is one entirely his own – taking the listener down dusty rose-colored desert highways; through a world where worn out gamblers, road-dogs, and lovesick hustlers drift in and out of his masked gaze.
“Big Sky,” his first single, is a campfire lullaby of Orville’s past lovers. He sings about his relationships – with an aloof biker, an abusive boxer and an overly protective jailor in the Florida Keys – and the inevitable demise of each one, as Orville leaves them for the wide open big sky.
Orville Peck’s music has been featured in publications like Nylon, i-D, Vice, The Needle Drop, and Office, as well as numerous Apple Music and Spotify playlists. Recently, he’s been featured in New York’s Hello Mr. as well the UK mag, Notion.
