We’ve kind of missed the boat so far with Okkervil River – for whatever reason we’ve just not fallen for their slightly quirky and densely literate charms. Hopefully that may change with their latest album I Am Very Far, which seems to be picking up uniformly good reviews.
First single Wake And Be Fine is typically sinewy in composition but at its heart lays something bruised and fragile. We’re liking it and looking forward to hearing the full album – it could be the start of something beautiful!
The album is out next month in the UK. Pre-order it here.
