Chris Orrick – “Design Flaw”
Chris Orrick is known for dancing a lyrical line between comedy & tragedy in his records. His upcoming album “Portraits” is the perfect culmination of his emotions, flaws, & insecurities weaved through his musical showcase. Chocked full of talented producers the likes of Apollo Brown, Exile, L’Orange, Onra, Calvin Valentine and Nolan The Ninja he tells stories of struggle & addiction above their backdrops. Here to give us a glimpse of what to expect on the upcoming project is the music video for “Design Flaw” laced over L’Orange production & directed by Malcolm Critcher.
“One thing that has always struck me about Chris Orrick’s lyrics is how deftly they walk the razors edge of the comedic and tragic. For our first collaboration, I wanted to bring this spirit to life. The idea of having a Puppet circling the drain to rock bottom was ultimately born from ruminating on addicts and what role denial plays in their struggle. The Puppet is approaching rock bottom as an alcoholic, but foundation-ally his substance abuse stems from his denial of the fact that he is an inanimate object. I thought this idea was hilarious. I hope you do too.”
