Brooklyn band Big Thief are set to release their debut album, Masterpiece, via Saddle Creek, a longtime independent label based in Omaha, Nebraska. The four-piece band make moody, emotionally wrought guitar songs that embrace country and southern rock tropes. Frontwoman Adrianne Lenker leads the procession with evocative imagery and riveting vocals, channeling the likes of Sharon Van Etten. The music video for their single “Masterpiece” features Big Thief’s various tour life antics.
Big Thief will host their album release party at Mercury Lounge on June 5. Watch Big Thief perform a 30-minute set in Baltimore from last August.
