One of the most talked about indie acts today, BIG THIEF announces two intimate New Zealand shows in May 2020. The news comes at a pivotal time for the Brooklyn-based quartet, who have lived through a mammoth year involving two critically acclaimed albums; one of which (U.F.O.F.) received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album while the following October release (Two Hands) only accelerated momentum for the group. Pitchfork perhaps put it most accurately, describing Two Hands as a “landmark album” from a band that “feels, at this moment, totally invincible”.
Catch Big Thief live in Auckland (May 25 - Powerstation) and Wellington (26 May - San Fran) as they celebrate the release of U.F.O.F. and Two Hands, both albums are out now on 4AD. The band will be supported by folk pop singer-songwriter INDIGO SPARKE on both dates.
