Orlando Weeks

+ support

From his influential time with The Maccabees to the multi-faceted ‘Gritterman’ story and two highly acclaimed solo albums, Orlando Weeks has carved a niche as one of the UK’s most singular talents. That reputation will further flourish with the release today of his new album ‘LOJA’ digitally on all platforms; with physical formats to follow on August 23rd via Fiction Records.

Orlando Weeks launched ‘LOJA’ in style, with the former Maccabees frontman teaming up with Rhian Teasdale of Wet Leg for its lead single ‘Dig’.

‘LOJA’ is a record in which place is as vital a characteristic as the emotions and incidents that he explores. The overarching themes are optimism and reflection: the positive mindset that emerged as he left London for a new life in Lisbon together with a new-found awareness about the things that you have left behind. Contentment emanates like a comforting embrace from an old friend. Yet life can never be as linear or as pure as unfiltered unhappiness and so ‘LOJA’ on occasion captures more corrosive moods too, from whispered confrontations to witnessing shocking tragedy in otherwise beautiful serenity.
