New Release: Big Thief – Century

Big Thief have shared ‘Century’, the third single from their new album U.F.O.F. (out last Friday). Following ‘Cattails’ and ‘UFOF’, ‘Century’ finds the band at the height of their powers as musicians, with bassist Max Oleartchik seamlessly intertwining with James Krivchenia’s effortless and inventive drumming

On top of it all, Adrianne Lenker’s evocative storytelling draws you in, weaving a tale left to your own devices to interpret. Closing the song out is a divine guitar solo from Buck Meek, one that leaves you wanting more, if only another few measures
