Coming Up: The Handsome Family

Howard Assembly Room, Leeds
Saturday 17 March 2018

The slow dive of the sun, enormous bugs awakening in thorny yards, sirens, and coyotes that cry out to the purple sky: the music of The Handsome Family captures things beyond our everyday view.

Brought to the attention of the wider world when TV show True Detective used their song, Far From Any Road as its opening theme in 2014, their most recent album Unseen is an epic western gothic masterpiece.

It explores the unseen stories, people, and places of the American West, where Brett and Rennie Sparks live (Albuquerque, NM). With their unique mix of country instrumentation and intriguing surrealist lyricism, they shine a light on the obscure and forgotten.

This is music that moves forward by turning the clock back— haunting, primal and 
strangely heroic.
