Orlando Weeks has shared his new single 'Big Skies Silly Faces'.
The songwriter shared his wonderful solo debut 'A Quickening' last year, a work of real depth and personality.
Moving quickly, he's soundtracked a brand new theatre production, while kicking off work on his second solo LP.
New song 'Big Skies Silly Faces' is a glimpse of heaven, with its dreamy arrangement hinging on production from Bullion.
Katy J Pearson supplies those high, keening harmonies, while lyrically Orlando is attempting to deal with the push to find positivity in bad situations.
He comments: "There’s something about that that’s always stayed with me, 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..."
