Big Thief - "Not"


Earlier this year, Big Thief released their excellent new record U.F.O.F and today they've already announced a follow-up record, Two Hands, due later this year. Yes, that's two new Big Thief records in 2019.

Recorded in the days following the U.F.O.F sessions, Big Thief went back into the studio to record a companion album 30 miles west of El Paso. According to lead singer Adrienne Lenker, "Two Hands has the songs that I’m the most proud of; I can imagine myself singing them when I’m old. Musically and lyrically, you can’t break it down much further than this. It’s already bare-bones.” In addition to announcing the new record, the band has also shared a single called "Not" which is one of the bands heaviest songs to date. Over six minutes, guitars flare-up and reverb destroys the mix creating one of their most rocking moments committed to tape and displays the band's ability to absolutely shred.
