Those diversions create moments of gut-wrenching contrast, making hackneyed rock tropes feel surprising again - proof that with this softening of their sound, Big Thief have alighted upon something that packs a real punch.
Formed in 2015, Brooklyn-based indie quartet Big Thief released their debut album Masterpiece to much critical acclaim just a year later. The compilation heralded a heady blend of folk-tinged melodies, angular arrangements, lyrics steeped in raw emotional poetry and lead singer Adrianne Lenker's fragile, almost spoken, haunting vocal style. Following a mammoth 2019, where they released two full-length albums and grabbed their first Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album, the band ready up to hit the road and continue their achievements into 2021/22!
Adept at sonically exploring light and shade, as well as a vast dynamic range, Big Thief careens from soft minimalistic ballad to grungy anthem, keeping the crowd rapt all the while. Unpredictable and possessing a high level of musicality, they take audiences on a journey through love, heartbreak and back again, counteracting the intensity with light hearted in-between-song banter that only endears them further.
