This event has been and gone.
Following the sold out solo show at London’s St Pancras Church in January, Waxahatchee has announced a set of UK dates with a full band for June. The line up will include Katie Crutchfield (guitar, vocals), Keith Spencer (guitar), Katherine Simonetti (bass), Ashley Arnwine (drums), and Allison Crutchfield (guitar, keys and backup vocals).
Waxahatchee returns with a new album 'Ivy Tripp' on 7th April. The follow up to 2013’s critically lauded 'Cerulean Salt', 'Ivy Tripp' drifts confidently from its predecessor and displays a more informed and powerful recognition of where Crutchfield currently finds herself. The previous themes of loss of youth and coming of age have been replaced with self control and sheer honesty; “My life has changed a lot in the last two years, and it’s been hard for me to process my feelings other than by writing songs,” says Crutchfield. “I think a running theme [of Ivy Tripp] is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming.”
Waxahatchee, the solo musical project of Katie Crutchfield, is named after a creek not far from her childhood home in Alabama and seems to represent both where she came from and where she’s going. Her husky voice suggests a seductively bohemian lifestyle and her poetic songs have a hint of protest about them.
