LEAN YEAR RELEASE DEBUT EP

LEAN YEAR RELEASE DEBUT EP

“Fuck off the old world”. Come And See, Lean Year.

Lean Year, the minimalist folk project of Richmond VA duo Emilie Rex and Rick Alverson released their debut album recently. It marks a brand new artistic chapter for both, Rex breaking out from academia and Alverson returning to music after ten years removed from the band Spokane working as a director. Underpinning its central ambience and contemplative song structures is an air of tender yearning that is adorned with lush ethereal instrumentation interrupted by moments of distortion and disquiet indicating all is not quite right in the multitude of past worlds they explore. We’ve collected all media from the release which you can check out below which includes the video for lead single ‘Come And See’ and the streams to ‘Watch Me’ and the recently shared ‘Waterloo Suns’. Lean Year is out now on Western Vinyl. Purchase it here.
