THE HACKLES – A DOBRITCH DID AS A DOBRITCH SHOULD
Released: NOV 8 2019
“We’re processing a lot of things going on in our world right now,” reflects Kati Claborn during a brief respite from touring. Along with her partner Luke Ydstie, Claborn is striving to make sense of the present by looking to the past in The Hackles’ upcoming album, A Dobtrich Did As A Dobritch Should, out on Jealous Butcher Records on November 8, 2019. “With the #MeToo movement,” says Claborn, “And all these other things coming to light, we’re looking at the big picture through individual lives.” In an era rife with discord, The Hackles are using melodic, shimmering indie folk to chronicle means of control and autonomy through idiosyncratic narratives.
