Album Review: Orlando Weeks – A Quickening

Posted on 12 Jun 2020 at 8:19am

The Maccabees were a rarity among indie bands; defined by their honesty, the group announced their split and a series of farewell gigs three years ago when they were at (or near) the top of their game.

Two successful but relatively run-of-the-mill albums provided a confidence to push their own boundaries on their masterpiece, the Mercury-nominated Given To The Wild. Serious muscle and scope was added to the usual sound whilst broadening the soundscape to be more ethereal and fragile.

After 2015’s Marks To Prove It, an inferior (but no less successful) sibling, the quintet were surely next in line for the headline slots. To their immense credit, instead the bandmates felt they had run their course and went their separate ways.

You’ll likely be familiar with these details, but this truncated biography is not without reason, as A Quickening, the debut album from frontman Orlando Weeks, acts as a quasi-spin off to Given To The Wild.

It sounds trite, but it’s very easy to imagine The Maccabees following this path, specifically its pensive, tender moments. This is likely down to Weeks’ distinctive voice (always better suited to gentle rather than frantic) and the subject matter, based around his recent fatherhood. There’s no doubt about it, this is a concept album, and is signposted as such.
