I was delighted to get a notification about Orlando Weeks in my inbox not too long ago. I've always enjoyed his voice as the lead singer of now-defunct British alternative band The Maccabees (RIP). In fact, I think he has one of the best, most captivating male voices in music today.
Last year, Orlando's debut album "A Quickening" was released into the world, capturing his feelings about the tumultuous world of parenthood. His new music takes off exactly where "A Quickening" left off. His sound has been described as "left-field pop," a description that is extremely apt. I found his new music reminding me of alt-j at times, but it's truly unique and truly his.
Check out his video for his new single "Deep Down Way Out" featuring comedian Lolly Adefope:
