Recorded predominately live, the record has an instant warmth and captures an immediacy the band have cultivated since their debut album. Considerably more upbeat than their last release U.F.O.F., lead singer Adrienne Lenker’s vocal is still fraught with plenty of emotion, while her lyrics, as always, are rich with devastating poetry. The world is unsurprisingly completely taken with Big Thief, who among many things, express the deepest of authenticity and generosity within their music.
Two Hands by Big Thief is out October 11 via 4AD/Remote Control.
