Signs to Sub Pop & shares new single & video "Big Sky"
Announces London Residency
Sub Pop has signed the enigmatic country singer Orville Peck, who will release his debut for the label in 2019.
Combining the lulling ambience of shoegaze with the iconic melodies and vocal prowess of classic American country music, enigmatic outlaw cowboy - Orville Peck, croons love and loss from the badlands of North America. The resulting sound is one completely 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.
Orville’s music will be available worldwide from Sub Pop, with the exception of Canada through Royal Mountain Records.
His first single for “Big Sky” 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.
His official video for the song, directed by Deni Cheng, follows our anti-hero as he travels through his America, waiting for time to pass.
