Adrianne Lenker Of Big Thief’s New Solo Single ‘From’ Is Haunting And Gorgeous

Adrianne Lenker of the Brooklyn-based indie rock band Big Thief has released the third single off her upcoming solo record, abysskiss. “From” is mellow and hypnotic, starting off with only Lenker’s delicate voice and a simple acoustic melody, and building layered vocals to a haunting end. In Big Thief, Lenker’s soft voice is the perfect accompaniment to the band’s emotionally raw lyrics, and she uses her voice to the same effect here. The lyrics are searching and sad, but still beautiful: “One ear to the ground / My dog barking loud / I couldn’t tell for sure where the screaming sound was coming from.”

Lenker is currently touring with Big Thief, and she has also announced North American and European dates to support abysskiss. Her solo record is due out this Friday (October 5) on Saddle Creek. You pre-order it here, and check out Lenker’s recently announced solo tour dates below.
