LISTEN: Buck Meek Shares Primitively Potent New Track “Candle” off New LP ‘Two Saviors’

Next Friday, January 15th, Big Thief’s Buck Meek will release his new album, Two Saviors, on Keeled Scales. Today, he offers a new single/video, “Candle,” (below) which follows previously released songs “Pareidolia” and “Second Sight.” “Candle” was co-written with Adrianne Lenker. Throughout the track, pedal steel flourishes alongside melancholic Rhodes piano. Mat Davidson’s voice shadows Buck’s as he sings: “Did your eyes change? // I remember them blue // or were they always hazel? // still the same face, with a line or two // the same love I always knew.” The accompanying video was shot and edited by Riley Engemoen and consists of footage from the studio.

“I was making my escape, when the siren’s song caught me a mile up the road,” says Buck. “My nose started bleeding by the second note, so I lit a candle to keep moving. I may have died and woke in heaven’s motel, with a telephone seashell at the bedside. It rang in waves and waves spoke, and waves heard through me.”
