“Foxlore is the coming-of-age story of The Crane Wives,” vocalist/guitarist Kate Pillsbury told Revue as way of introduction to the Grand Rapids band’s new LP. “We wrote the songs at a time when we were still bumbling through our lives a bit. So much has happened to us between the writing of these songs and the consequent recordings.”
Beginning as a two-album concept as far back as 2014, Foxlore is the sister record to The Crane Wives’ last album, 2015’s Coyote Stories.
Since that time, life has continued unabated for the young indie band.
