Gearing up for the release of their forthcoming album U.F.O.F., Big Thief have dropped a folky new single called “Cattails.”
“Cattails” starts as a simple track, revolving around finger-picking guitar lines and a steady drum beat, slowly building into an airy, twinkling piano-based tune. “‘Cattails’ came about while we were at the studio in Washington in the pine forest,” band member Adrianne Lenker explains in a statement. “Writing it was just one of those electric multicoloured waves of connectivity just sweeping through my body.”
Listen to “Cattails” below.
U.F.O.F. is set for release on May 3rd.
