Today, they share the first single, ‘UFOF’ and North American tour dates to add to their 2019 live schedule. Adrianne Lenker (guitar, vocals), Buck Meek (guitar), Max Oleartchik (bass), and James Krivchenia (drums) have spent the last 4 years on an incessant world tour, winning the devotion of an enthusiastic and rapidly expanding audience. Their first two back-to-back releases, Masterpiece (2016) and Capacity (2017), have been analysed, wept to, danced to, critically applauded, imitated, hummed idly, and shouted out loud. They have sound-tracked crowded restaurants, difficult conversations, cowboy bars, yoga classes, night drives, and lonely bedrooms.
“Making friends with the unknown… All my songs are about this,” says Lenker; “If the nature of life is change and impermanence, I’d rather be uncomfortably awake in that truth than lost in denial.”
U.F.O.F. is available for pre-order today on LP, CD, and digital. Limited translucent orange vinyl is available via the Big Thief store and 4AD store, plus your local indie retailer. Limited forest green vinyl will be available through Vinyl Me Please, beginning 27th February.
