Our favorite fringe masked gay cowboy Orville Peck released the final chapter in his three-part record, Bronco, on Friday. Orville Peck talks about musical inspiration from growing up in South Africa, telling biographical tales in his music that seem fictional, and creating Bronco after struggling with depression and almost giving up on music during the pandemic.  

“I was deeply, deeply depressed and almost quit music when COVID hit because I stopped working and stopped touring and like so many of us I realized that I had been escaping into my routine and my busy lifestyle and I looked at my personal life and it was a nightmare, and I looked at the fact that I was feeling so lost, and when I came out of that and started writing Bronco it was like this big catharsis,” Peck says.
