Indie-Folk singer Kris Orlowski has long captivated us with his moving voice and lyrics. Now the troubadour is teaming up with Seattle-based producer Budo for a collaboration that brings out the best in both of them. Mixing Orlowski’s voice with orchestral instrumentation and a simple but pounding beat, the first track “Waterski to Texas” is a captivating mixture of sounds that mesh together effortlessly. The track drips in melancholic strings that heighten the stark sincerity of Orlowski’s voice.
This song is the first to be released from the collaboration, which will culminate in a new record out early next year. Check the video above.
