Big Thief is a Brooklyn based indie-rock outfit consisting of Adrianne Lenker on guitar and vocals, Buck Meek on guitar, Max Oleartchik on bass, and James Krivchenia on drums. The group released their first full length album in 2016 and another album in June 2017 to great success--both via the indie label Saddle Creek Records. The group was featured on Late Night with Seth Myers and went on to do a massive headlining tour.

The release of their second album, Capacity will be followed by a 60+ date summer tour 2017. The album received favorable reviews from Pitchfork, NPR, and Rolling Stone. The latter said, “Her Brooklyn group's second set is even prettier and more intense than their 2016 debut, a mix of seductive and scary with lyrical turns that rarely fail to surprise, even on repeated listens.” 

The band is living proof that indie rock is far from dead.
