premiere: White Hinterland | “Icarus”

Kairos is the adventurous new full-length from White Hinterland, due March 9 on Dead Oceans. Influenced by a move from the East Coast to Portland and her recent listening habits (among other things), the new record finds Casey Dienel eschewing the jazzier/folk steez of her earlier work in favor of spectral, slinky modern R & B and minimal pop — think Arthur Russell, Glasser, Dirty Projectors, the xx, tune-yards, et al. — a sound previously hinted at on the group’s stunning Timberlake/Russell covers that surfaced late last year. On the surface, a dramatic shift, but Kairos feels like an undeniably graceful, surprisingly natural step up. “Icarus” is the album’s ethereal, spooky/sexy opening track:

White Hinterland :: Icarus



white hinterland :: my love (timberlake cover)
white hinterland :: lucky cloud (arthur russell cover)
