Praise for Orville Peck:
“His music is bursting with personality, a 21st century-ready re-imagining of the classic outlaw country tradition." - Loud & Quiet
"It’s a country record, built out of broken-glass heartbreak, tearful melodies, and sweeping, deserted drama, wandering from one blackened torch song to the next." - The FADER
“The priapic “Dead of Night” is Roy Orbison’s “I Drove All Night” if it had a Grindr profile or The Ballad of Buster Scruggs with John Waters behind the lens. We love it so much we might cry.” - The Guardian
“Although we may never know the man behind the mask, with the release of Peck’s highly anticipated album…just might find some of the answers we are looking for” - Milk.XYZ
“The music of Orville Peck is a love letter and urgent update to a genre whose rebellious spirit has been co-opted and polished, at once a reminder of where country music came from, but also pushing the boundaries on where it can go." - Exclaim
“With Pony, Orville Peck has put himself in the boxing ring for his own ’68 Comeback Special.” - The Line Of Best Fit
“The familiar tropes of nomadic wrangler life are present--trusty steed, blood-red sunsets--but, refreshingly, the masculine cliches are not. Instead, the country-rocker concentrates on intimacy, tenderness and ambiguity.” - Uncut
"As part of a long history of rockers going genre, most famously with glammy New York Dolls frontman David Johansen’s totally 80s transformation to lounge lizard Buster Poindexter, Peck gladly immerses willing listeners in his weird, Southern-fried world."- Noisey
“An intense sonic ride” - L’Officiel
“Utterly seductive” - MOJO
