Big Thief teased new music on Instagram and released a clip of band leader Adrianne Lenker performing solo with an acoustic guitar. According to the caption, the song is called “Simulation Swarm” and the clip was recorded in March last year. Check it out below.
After releasing UFOF and Two Hands in 2019, Big Thief released a handful of new song demos last year for the benefit of the street crew. The band also shared the new song “Love in Mine” in the spring.
Some members of the band have released solo projects over the past year. Lenker released Companion Records songs and instrumentals under their own name last fall, and guitarist Buck Meek released his second solo album, Two Saviors, in January. Drummer James Krivchenia released an ambient album called A New Found Relaxation last summer.
