“I never thought I’d make cliff top, roof down, drive into the sunset type music but, ‘Deep Down’ does feel like that to me,” Orlando says. “A sort of stompy freedom. A very concise, 2 minutes of freedom. I think it’s the best representative of the world myself and Bullion were trying to build on the album. Lean but full of buoyancy. In the absence of a convertible and cliff top I wanted the video to have that slight fanciful, otherworldliness and be unapologetically head-noddy. The otherworldliness comes courtesy of Daniel W Fletcher’s bespoke double headed costume, made especially for the video. And the unapologetic head nodding is thanks to Lolly Adefope with Rik Burnell directing and pulling it all together.“

Have a listen to the stunning collab now.
It follows the release of his second solo album ‘Hop Up’.
‘A Quickening’ found the former Maccabee ruminating on the more pensive aspects of parenthood. ‘Hop Up’ follows to show the more joyful side of the coin with a record rooted in lightness and pleasure.
An irresistibly likeable album, very much in the mould of its creator’s affable, mellow personality.
