Artist Spotlight: Bartees Strange

Poised for a sensational return to the UK this Spring with a headline tour, Bartees Strange is an artist that has been on our radar since he dropped an incredible EP 'say Goodbye To Pretty Boy' - a unique recreation of The National covers - back in 2020.

Since then, he has released a further two albums of original music. His debut - 'Live Forever' was declared 'Best New Music' by Pitchfork and "one of the most fascinating and affecting debuts of the year" upon its release in October 2020. Keeping the creative juices flowing, he also released a remix of Phoebe Bridgers' 'Kyoto' back in 2021 - offering yet another dimension and insight into his incredible soundscapes and talent.

Flash-forward to last year and we reach 'Farm to Table'; his first album via iconic label 4AD, which was released to wide acclaim. Rolling Stone wrote "Strange’s undeniable talent and versatility have resulted in one of 2022’s most audacious albums" about the genre-defiant record packed with soulful harmonies, inspired instrumentation and cutting social commentary, while Stereogum boast "Bartees Strange is one of the most exciting prospects in music today" and made 'Farm to Table' their album of the week.

In full-circle fashion, the Brooklyn via Oklahoma musician is set to support now-label-mates The National across Europe; as well as being part of the maiden edition of Re:SET festivals in select US cities this summer alongside boygenius, Clairo and Dijon.

2023 is sure to be a huge year for Bartees Strange and we can't wait to hear his exquisite discography live. The opportunity to hear Strange's sounds at an intimate venue near is a rare one and not something that we envision will be possible for much longer.

Tickets for Bartees Strange's headline shows this April are on sale now.
