Eleanor Friedberger - Solo Singer Tours UK with New View
After spending eleven years as one half of sibling duo Fiery Furnaces with her older brother Matthew, this critically-acclaimed singer has carved herself a place as one of the most interesting female solo artists on the indie rock scene. Departing from the complex sound of her former band, Eleanor's stripped back, '70s inspired chorales have earned her a legion of fans on both side of the Atlantic.
In 2016, the singer released her third album New View, a collection of songs inspired by her renewed sense of self after moving to upstate New York. Buoyed by standout singles 'He Didn't Mention His Mother' and 'Sweetest Girl', the LP has already garnered praise from critics. UK fans get their chance to hear the new material with a tour of our smaller venues this summer. Pick up Eleanor Friedberger tickets on StubHub.
Eleanor Friedberger Biography - From Fiery Furnaces to Solo Success
Illinois siblings Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger formed Fiery Furnaces in 2000, and spent the next eleven years developing their sprawling, highly conceptual sound. While Matthew provided the zany, maximalist instrumentation, Eleanor was the sobering voice behind their densely layered tracks. Together, they released nine albums including Blueberry Boat (2004) and Bitter Tea (2006), inspired by everything from indie rock to musical theatre, but announced an indefinite hiatus in 2011.
Since then, Eleanor has been developing a fantastically received solo discography, departing somewhat from the multifaceted, frenzied sound of Fiery Furnaces. In 2011, she released her stripped back debut album Last Summer, which earned waves of critical acclaim for evoking the sound of '70s artists like Joni Mitchell and Patti Smith. She followed up with her similarly successful sophomore effort Personal Record in 2013, which was packed with emotive wordplay and described by Pitchfork as a 'travelogue of the mind'.
In 2016, she released her third album New View, recorded with her backing band Icewater in a log cabin near her new home in upstate New York. The critically acclaimed LP has been described as her warmest and most self-aware record yet. Why not see her perform it live? Grab Eleanor Friedberger tickets now on StubHub.
