De forma a apoiar os elementos da touring crew dos Big Thief, os norte-americanos lançaram Demos Vol. 1 – Topanga Canyon, CA – Feb 2018, um novo EP em exclusivo no Bandcamp e os valores da venda revertem na íntegra para os colaboradores da banda da Adrianne Lenker.
Sobre o novo extended play, os Big Thief deixaram a seguinte nota:
We spent the month of February 2018 in a cabin in Topanga Canyon, California, recording 34 demos that were boiled down to become UFOF and Two Hands, and we’re bringing a handful into light now to share with everyone. We chose 5 of our favorites – none of which appear on any Big Thief records and a couple of which appear in different forms on Adrianne’s abysskiss. 100% of the funds we make from this release will go to our faithful road crew, whose income has been impacted by the disruption in our touring schedule. They are the lifeblood of the Big Thief shows and we care so deeply for each and every one of them. Please consider buying this if it is within your ability to support, as we are all going through tough times right now.
Por agora está já disponível o inédito “Live Young (Topanga Demo)” para escuta em baixo. O EP traz, além do single promocional, mais dois inéditos – “Mermaid” e “Over ” – e dois temas do disco de Lenker, Abysskiss.
