Orville Peck has shared the Austin Peters-directed music video for “Daytona Sand”, one of four tracks from Chapter One off his forthcoming album Bronco which releases globally via Columbia Records on April 8th. “Daytona Sand” is the story of a wild day in Florida gone awry and draws heavily from such classic American iconography including but not limited to westerns, muscle cars, surfers, dive bars, roadside motels and of course cowboys.
Says Orville, “We shot the video for ‘Daytona Sand’ over three days in Miami as an homage to all things Florida. When we wrote the story for the video, we never thought we’d be able to pull off half the stuff we were dreaming up but somehow, we managed it all, including a horseback police chase and me surfing on an 18-wheeler truck through Miami.” He adds, “I don’t know if they’ll ever let us back into Florida again but this is probably my favorite video to date!”

Bronco plays upon the horse theme so often found in Orville’s work, but this time with an exploration of freedom, breaking free from that which binds us and all that is wild and untamed.
Bronco builds upon and follows Peck’s previous album Pony and EP Show Pony, which explored themes of love, loss and loneliness but advances the story arc in a bolder, newer and warmer trajectory.
“This is my most impassioned and authentic album to date,” says Peck. “I was inspired by country rock, 60s & 70s psychedelic, California and bluegrass with everything being anchored in country. Bronco is all about being unrestrained and the culmination of a year of touring, writing in isolation and going through and ultimately emerging from a challenging personal time.”
