For more than a decade, Eleanor Friedberger recorded music with her brother Matthew as The Fiery Furnaces and they released eight albums but for now, The Fiery Furnaces have disbanded and are on hiatus and Eleanor came out with her own debut. New View was released in January and we still can’t get enough.

New View is memorable and gives off Patti Smith or Joni Mitchell vibes. Eleanor’s robust voice is distinct making it a laid back listen but make no mistake about it, Eleanor is here to stay and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store because she’s able to captivate you as her sound lingers and clings to your bones as her sound is brimming with gentle guitar riffs, acoustic chords, jangly organs, vibrating drum beats over, and more.
There’s an essence that is reminiscent of George Harrison’s solo work, think All Things Must Pass. There’s a faint emulation of spiritualism that is mesmerizing.
Eleanor’s words are incredibly relatable, dealing with things like wistful moments of lovelorn while having a mystical air to her music. She nails her narrative and is able to capture her words to pen perfectly and translate it into music that is sure to get stuck in your head. She has definitely been the soundtrack to a couple of my lazy Sunday’s and she’s so fitting.
