Get To Know Orville Peck: From Opening Harryween to the ‘Euphoria’ Soundtrack!

Orville Peck is a name we expect to hear a lot in the upcoming world of music. In case you don’t know who he is we are giving you the breakdown here!

For fans of Euphoria, the show’s music has become an integral part of the series. The show includes a unique range of genres–from Labrinth’s EDM-pop and Tupac and Biggie’s old school rap. The soundtrack has gained attention from fans for its unique pairing of music to character.

The most unexpected pairing was Orville Peck with notorious bad-boy jock Nate Jacobs (played by Jacob Elordi) in the first episode of season two. As Nate speeds up his car on the way to a New Years Eve party with his ex’s best friend, the moody alternative country track “Dead of Night” plays softly from his car radio.

The song now has over 18 million streams, and thousands of TikTok users have made videos with the sound. Read on to know everything about the budding alt-country star.

Orville Peck has never shown his face in public.

Peck has become known for his unique fringed masks that he wears during all of his performances and public appearances. His true identity remains anonymous, and he’s said that the name “Orville Peck” is a pseudonym. The man of mystery has vaguely stated that he was born in the southern hemisphere.
