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.

Big Thief Tours New Album Two Hands

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 the release of their hotly anticipated fourth album, the outfit hit the road on the Two Hands North American tour. 

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.
