Big Thief‘s Adrianne Lenker will release two new albums, songs and instrumentals, on Friday 23 October. She shares a new single, ‘dragon eyes’, which follows lead single ‘anything’.
Throughout ‘dragon eyes’, Lenker’s sweet voice moves over guitar like wind rustling through autumn leaves. Her lyrics refer to tangible feelings – hot sand, cold air, and cool hands – and more mystical images – a “dragon with silent eyes.” Each stanza ends with a differing refrain that’s as pleading as Lenker’s vocal inflections: “I just want a place with you // I just want a place.”
