Combining the lulling ambiance 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, aloof road-dogs, and lovesick hustlers drift in and out of his masked gaze.
Orville’s debut album was released in March 2019 on Sub Pop & Royal Mountain (in Canada). It debuted on the Top 200 Billboard album charts and his first ever North American and UK tour dates sold out just weeks after being announced. Pony has been heralded as a genre game changer and breakthrough album by The Guardian, Dazed, The Fader, Rolling Stone Country, i-D, Mojo, Noisey, Toronto Star and dozens more. It’s a diverse collection of stories that sing of heartbreak, revenge and the unrelenting tug of the cowboy ethos. Warm lap steel guitars and echoing drums move through dreamy ballads, campfire lullabies and sometimes near frantic buzzsaw tunes - all the while paying homage to his country music roots.
