Event Details

Written and recorded over the past year, Penny and Sparrow’s remarkable new album,Olly Olly, is a work of liberation and revelation, a full-throated embrace of the selffrom a band that’s committed to leaving no stone unturned in their tireless quest foractualization. The songs here are fearless and introspective, embracing growth andchange as they reckon with desire, intimacy, doubt, and regret, and the arrangementsare similarly bold and thoughtful, augmenting the duo’s rich, hypnotic brand ofchamber folk with electronic flourishes and R&B grooves. The duo—Andy Baxter andKyle Jahnke—produced Olly Olly themselves, working on their own without an outsidecollaborator for the first time, and the result is the purest, most authentic act ofartistic self-expression the pair have ever achieved.

“Andy and I talk about the process of making this record like a sort of musicalRumspringa,” Jahnke says. “It was an opportunity to truly become ourselves, to evolveoutside of the roles we’d been put in—or put ourselves in—because of the way we’dgrown up.”Texas natives Baxter and Jahnke first crossed paths at UT Austin, where theydeveloped a fast friendship and a deeply symbiotic musical connection. Jahnke was agifted guitarist with an ear for melody, Baxter, an erudite lyricist with a mesmerizingvoice and crystalline falsetto, and the duo quickly found that their vocals blendedtogether as if they’d been singing in harmony their whole lives. Beginning with 2013’s‘Tenboom,’ the staunchly DIY pair released a series of critically lauded records thatgarnered comparisons to the hushed intimacy of Iron & Wine and the adventurousbeauty of Bon Iver, building up a devoted fanbase along the way through relentlesstouring and word-of-mouth buzz. NPR praised the band’s songwriting as a “delicatedance between heartache and resolve,” while Rolling Stone hailed their catalog as“folk music for Sunday mornings, quiet evenings, and all the fragile moments inbetween.” The duo’s most recent album, 2019’s Finch, marked a turning point in theircareer, pushing their sound to experimental new heights as it wrestled with notions ofmasculinity and religion and transformation in deeper, more personal ways than everbefore. The record debuted at #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and was metwith a rapturous response from critics and audiences alike, racking up more than 40million streams on Spotify and earning the band their biggest headline tour to date.
