Watch Rex Orange County’s groovy NPR ‘Tiny Desk’ set

Two songs from ‘Pony,’ as well as two fan favorites.

British singer Rex Orange County—real name Alex O’Connor—is the latest musician to appear at NPR’s Tiny Desk.

The 21-year-old kicked things off with his breakout Benny Sings collab, “Loving is Easy,” backed-up by a five-piece band all dressed in white. “Loving is easy / You had me fucked up / It used to be so hard to see / Yeah, loving is easy / When everything’s perfect / Please don’t change a single little thing for me,” O’Connor crooned.

Later, he segued into “Pluto Projector” and “Always,” cuts from his latest album, Pony. O’Connor then wrapped up the set with an old favorite, 2017’s “Sunflower.”


Rex Orange County is the latest musician to grace NPR’s Tiny Desk, following former One Direction member Harry Styles, rapper CHIKA and British band Coldplay.
