It has to be said, that prior to the release their fourth album (at the autumnal equinox on 22 September 2020 after being announced only one day in advance) I hadn’t really paid much attention to Fleet Foxes, an American folk band.
Singer/songwriter Robin Pecknold ‘…wanted the album to exist in a liminal space outside of time, inhabiting both the future and the past, accessing something spiritual or personal that is untouchable by whatever the state of the world may be at a given moment, whatever our season.‘
It’s a musically adventurous album that’s life affirming, warm and full of grace; one that faces life’s realities yet comes across as a breath of fresh air. It’s one of my favourites of 2020.
