Orlando Weeks has debuted a brand new single, ‘Big Skies, Silly Faces’.
The first taster of a forthcoming second album, it comes after last year’s debut solo full-length ‘A Quickening’.
The track features vocal harmonies from Katy J Pearson, bass from Ben Reed and production from Deek Recordings founder Bullion. Partly inspired by the idea of examining the facets of fatherhood, it also takes influence from the early Mike Leigh film ‘Nuts in May’.
“There’s something about that that’s always stayed with me,” he explains, “the very English absurdity of making the most of a situation. The desperation for any potential silver lining. Really though I think Big Skies Silly Faces is about how I can be my own worst enemy – “No stopping that sky high as its wide … my mind against my better thinking. know the feeling but wonder why…”
