ORFEO - "Quiet Nights" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

L.A.-based electro-soul newcomer ORFEO has released the visuals to his single, "Quiet Nights," and the video is only just slightly more androgynous than the singer's impressive falsetto. A classically trained opera singer, ORFEO glides around his high range with ease, giving us an immediate "if Maxwell and Prince had a musical baby" kind of vibe that we really cannot be mad at. The video is a little bit of a trip, following ORFEO as both the male and female leads, but both roles feel almost as comfortable for him as the soft-moving electro beat of the track suggests. "Quiet Nights" and its flip side "No Substitution" were both co-written by Robin Hannibal of Quadron note and released on Quieres Chicle Records, the imprint responsible for last year's dope Quadron collab with soul vet Leon Ware. Check out the video for "Quiet Nights" below.
