Sarabeth Tucek - New Album and UK Tour
'State I Am In' is, on first listen at least, one of the more upbeat tracks on the album, both musically and lyrically, with its Dylan-esque wordplay and Crazy Horse guitars. Lest we forget, this is a collection of songs all based around the death of Sarabeth's father and her response to it, or as she puts it "an impressionistic rendering of a time ruled by grief".
Sarabeth describes 'State I Am In' as "a song about self-destructiveness", before explaining that "it's about attempting to walk in someone else's shoes. Someone you loved and lost. And then thinking, 'Maybe I should just go get drunk.'"
Sarabeth will be visiting the UK for the following dates, including Camden Crawl, a tour as special guest of The Leisure Society and a headline show at The Band Rooms in North Yorkshire:
