Dear Nora, the long time recording project of Katy Davidson (pronouns they/them), has shared "White Fur," the leadoff track from their upcoming Orindal LP, Skulls Example, their first album in over a decade. Stereogum premiered the track & interviewed Davidson today.
Skulls Example is about the persistence of human connection, the way that humanity tends to persevere despite all the opportunities we now have to shut everything out... Davidson’s wry observations have a way of worming their way into your psyche.
Like their landmark 2004 album, Mountain Rock, which was named Best New Reissue by Pitchfork last year, Skulls Example continues to explore Katy Davidson's fascination with the vast realms & intersections of wilderness, humanity, morality, technology, late capitalism, human connections & love during turbulent political times.
Skulls Example won't be released until May 25, but vinyl pre-orders begin shipping next week. Order your copy on black, clear, or limited edition transparent blue swirl vinyl HERE.
Additionally, Dear Nora has expanded their late spring tour to
include some east coast shows. The tour includes dates with Nicholas
Krgovich, Lisa/Liza, Stephen Steinbrink, Hand Habits & Harmony Tividad. You'll find more information on the TOUR DATES page.
