Aiken Promotions proudly presents Orville Peck live at The Grand Social, 22 nd October

2019. Tickets €16.00 inclusive of booking fee, on sale Friday at 10AM.

Orville’s debut album, Pony, was released in March. The album delivers 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 and sometimes near frantic

buzzsaw tunes - all the while paying homage to his country music roots.

Pony’s lead single “Dead of Night” is a torch song about two hustlers traveling through Nevada

desert. Their whirlwind romance takes us on a dusty trail of memories - racing down canyon

highways, hitchhiking through casino towns and ultimately, ending in tragedy. Orville recalls the

adventures of his young love, as he watches the boys silently pass him on the strip, haunted by

the happy memories of his past.

On the campfire lullaby, “Big Sky,” Orville sings about his past lovers - an aloof biker, an

abusive boxer and an overly protective jailor in the Florida Keys - and the inevitable demise of

each one, as he leaves them for the wide open, big sky.

Meanwhile “Turn To Hate” finds Orville struggling to keep his resentment from building into

hatred. A continuous battle between embracing the strength and freedom of being an outsider,

and the inevitable struggle of wanting normalcy and familiarity. It encapsulates Orville's

dilemma as a cowboy. He sings about having to constantly repair situations in his wake, and

fighting with himself over his decision making. To stay or go; to cry or not; whether to leave

without saying goodbye in order to soften the blow; All the while wishing someone would tell him

that they "can't stay," and to make the decision for him.

And “Buffalo Run” acts as a warning, a song built around the imagery of stampeding buffalo in

the badlands of the Northern Plains. It’s one that begins peacefully enough but soon transcends

into a kinetic charge that crescendos as the buffalo are headed off the cliffside.
