Following the release of her fifth studio album Saint Cloud in March of 2020, Katie Crutchfield aka Waxahatchee is set to perform this Friday at The Sylvee. An album decorated with nature motifs, a chilling sense of calmness and an ode to the ones she loves, Saint Cloud is a bluesy album that is perfect for the changing of the seasons.
Saint Cloud offers listeners a different story compared to her past work. Written immediately after her decision to get sober, this album offers a clearer, more honest perspective on her own personal battles and the promise of introspection. The album is full of small odes to the power of sobriety. The first line of the opening track “Oxbow” reads; “Barna in white/married the night.” In previous interviews, Crutchfield says that ‘Barna’ is a reference to the city of Barcelona, where she decided to quit drinking. Crutchfield, an Alabama native, has since moved to Kansas City, where she lives with her long-time partner, Kevin Morby.
Saint Cloud is an 11-track journey to a better tomorrow, constantly reminding us that there’s beauty in complete transparency. The Waxahatchee show this weekend requires proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and all fans will be required to wear a mask, according to The Sylvee’s website. Tickets are still available on Ticketmaster, so get yours now and don’t miss out on a night of much-needed self-examination.
