Orcas - MORR
FILTER Grade: 84%

Bordeaux’s Dune du Pilat is an unlikely, yet stunning mix of nature’s sublime forces: One smells fir from the forest behind it and sees the Atlantic coast, trees or a desert from its peak. Orcas is like the dune, but the strangely juxtaposed elements are instead classical, pop and ambient music. A collaboration between Benoît Pioulard and Rafael Anton Irisarri (of The Sight Below), Orcas find a space that floats between velvet vocals and Pioulard’s field recordings in a time frozen between dreams and a reality beautifully faded by the sun.
