Playing a Tāmaki Makaurau Splendour in the Grass sideshow the same night as Isle Of Wight buzz band Wet Leg, Orville Peck has now gone and released his second studio long player Bronco in full the same day as that duo’s self-titled album. Sounding huge, melodramatic and unabashedly big-hearted, the bemasked Canada-based country icon certainly lays it on thick over Bronco‘s generously packed fifteen tracks, but that’s all part of the magic. Best succumb to the mysterious singer’s golden-toned and tasseled charms, hit play on Bronco, wipe away that fleck of dust from your eye (how did that get there?) and mosey on over to The Powerstation on 17th July…
Sunday 17th July – Powerstation, Auckland
Tickets available via Live Nation
‘Bronco’ is out today via Columbia Records.
