Big Thief - 'Shark Smile'

I wish I'd seen Big Thief play Bristol last November, what a band. I'm not going to write anything here that hasn't been written about them on any other website. Basically they're brilliant and you need to hear them, some of the best music I've heard in a while. There's something calm and knowing in her voice, there's something 90's about the guitar and bass, there's something magic connecting it all together.

The lyrics of 'Shark Smile' ooze pain. Singer Adrianne Lenker said it's "a story of a car accident in which one dies and one lives". "She recalls her lover leading up to the moment of the wreck, wishing she'd been taken into the next realm too."

'Shark Smile' is taken off their second album, Capacity released in June of last year via Saddle Creek. Big Thief are a Brooklyn based band.
