While gearing up for the release of Two Saviors on January 15th, Big Thief’s Buck Meek has released a video for his new track “Candle.”
While the new track was cowritten with Adrianne Lenker, it doesn’t sound remotely like a Big Thief song, leaving Meek’s rustic tinge to it.
“I was making my escape, when the siren’s song caught me a mile up the road,” Meek explains of the track. “My nose started bleeding by the second note, so I lit a candle to keep moving. I may have died and woke in heaven’s motel, with a telephone seashell at the bedside. It rang in waves and waves spoke, and waves heard through me.”
