Lorkin O'Reilly - "Pelé Pelé"

Photo via Facebook

Lorkin O'Reilly was born in Edinburgh (his mother is a native of Ireland) in 1994 and immigrated to upstate New York to work on a farm in 2012. To make his backstory even more folky, he found an acoustic guitar in a basement and started writing songs. His latest single, "Pelé Pelé," is quiet modern folk with a traditional base. The song is almost painfully fragile sounding. This is bedroom Americana at its finest, sounding like we just walked in on a confessional from O'Reilly. It's a beautiful song in its simplicity. 

In a press release, Lorkin O'Reilly explains the song and video:

"One of my rituals during quarantine was to take long baths in the evening and watch Youtube highlights of old soccer games. I think a lot of immigrants can relate to the comfort in submerging oneself in cultural pastimes. At least, hearing the commentators' accents, seeing the faces of the fans and hearing the songs really helped me when feeling homesick.


"I find sports really fascinating. These men and women, dressed in beautiful matching outfits with 'Marvel'-esque physiques are effectively superheroes in all but a cape. They unite countries, cities and families. We applaud their genius when they succeed and shout and curse when they fail. Anyways: I enjoyed the juxtaposition between 'superhero' and man in the bath feeling self-conscious about his weight."

You can watch the video for "Pelé Pelé" below. Marriage Material is due out August 20 on Team Love Records. You can pre-order the album through Bandcamp. For more on Lorkin O'Reilly, check out the artist's Facebook and Twitter.
