Big Thief : Share Live Video Of 'Orange' And Announce Biggest UK Headline Show
15th May 2019

"A true masterpiece of folk music from a band working together at the highest level.” - Pitchfork (9.2, Best New Music)
"The impact is so quiet you might miss it, but it’s revelatory enough that you can’t escape it." - Rolling Stone ****
"U.F.O.F. doesn’t feel crafted, it feels invoked from the spaces between the four hearts involved." - The Wire
“Full of subtle charm, it’s an album of deceptive depths in which to immerse yourself.” - The Observer ****
"There's a mystical bind to U.F.O.F.that grips the listener and never lets go."- Uncut (9/10)
"This ought to be the ‘difficult’ third album, but it is their best yet.” - The Sun (4.5/5)
"Their most stylistically ambitious record yet."- Loud And Quiet (9/10)
"A record full of striking transitions and lucid dreaming."- MOJO ****
"A profound and poised third album."- Record Collector ****
“A beguiling, constantly surprising record.” - Q ****

Today, Big Thief share a live performance from last year’s Pitchfork Music Festival of their song ‘Orange’, the most intimate and exposed song on their critically-acclaimed new album U.F.O.F.  There is perhaps no greater example of singer Adrianne Lenker’s ability to draw in her audience, regardless of its size, to create a moment of intimate communion, than a video juxtaposing the delicacy of ‘Orange’ with a massive festival crowd. 

Watch 'Orange' (Live at Pitchfork Music Festival 2018) here.

Ahead of their upcoming European tour, Big Thief have announced they will follow next week’s sold-out Roundhouse show with their biggest headline date next year. The band will headline the Eventim Apollo on 27th February 2020.  A See Tickets pre-sale begins on Monday 20th May at 9AM BST, with a general sale Wednesday 22nd May at 9AM.
