Little more than a year on from releasing their aptly-titled debut ‘Masterpiece,’ Brooklyn’s Big Thief are back with a new record!
‘Capacity’ will be out on 9th June via Saddle Creek and promises to show singer and guitarist Adrienne Lenker showing the gentler side of being ripped apart and pulling yourself back together again. Expect a bit of an emotional rollercoaster then.
Speaking of the album, Adrienne herself said: “There is a darker darkness and a lighter light on this album. The songs search for a deeper level of self-acceptance, to embrace the world within and without. I think Masterpiece began that process, as a first reaction from inside the pain, and Capacity continues that examination with a wider perspective.”
To coincide with the announcement, the band have shared brand new single ‘Mythological Beauty’ as well as a video directed by Vanessa Haddad and Adam Gundersheimer. In it, Adrienne carries a stricken man through the woods. The question is, how did he end up like that? It’s got vibes reminiscent of ‘The Revenant’ but also features a cameo from Adrienne’s mother! See if you can spot her.
