Big Thief Play ‘Shoulders’ On ‘Kimmel’ And Announce Tour Dates

0

Prolific folk-rockers Big Thief put out two albums last year, U.F.O.F. and Two Hands, and have since been making the promotional rounds. Big Thief has managed to play nearly every recorded performance opportunity available, including The Late Show, KEXP, and even a day-time set at CBS This Morning. But the band does what they can to make sure each set is different. Big Thief manages to pull from their wide catalog for their performances, alternating between hits. This time, the group performed “Shoulders” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, taking a page from the October album Two Hands.

The four-piece group took the stage, electing to forgo some of the large-scale production that Kimmel’s guests often times opt for. But Big Thief doesn’t need any stage distractions while they play. Vocalist Adrianne Lenker’s scaling voice is enough to pull crowds in and hold their attention, having a knack for making large performances seem small and intimate with her personal lyrics. “Shoulders” is no different, with Lenker crooning a bleak story. “They found you at the corner / Your head was doubled over / And the blood of the man who killed my mother with his hands / Is in me,” Lenker sings.

Just before taking the late-night stage, Big Thief announced they are going on yet another global tour. Beginning in February, the band will make several stops throughout Europe and Australia before arriving in North America in July.
