There are ghost notes of all of those influences on New View, but mostly you hear the singular voice of Eleanor Friedberger, whose warm, inviting alto and incredible wordplay continue to make her one of the foremost songwriters in the indie rock world today.
New View is an exciting and masterfully-crafted addition to Eleanor Friedberger’s already top-notch catalog. PRESS HERE to purchase New View now.
