Kerchief, Fluke Review
Coming from the musical state of Tennessee is a three-piece band that calls themselves, Kerchief. At the helm is songwriter Britt Hill. She began Kerchief as a solo project with the self-produced Demonstrations EP in 2014. This was followed up by Kerchief’s 2015 debut LP, Machines And Animals released via 825 Records. The full-length alt-rock record showcased Hill’s talent for crafting songs that are distinctly personal, while being down to earth and relatable to the listener. Hill decided to start touring to build a regional following. That meant recruiting what turned out to be a revolving cast of musicians. All the while staying prolific as songwriter, releasing two self-produced EPs Corner House in 2016, and Rinse in 2018. Now in 2019, Kerchief is set to return with a sophomore LP titled, Fluke, on March 1, 2019. Having solidified a line-up with the addition of brothers Tommy and Trevor Nicholson on bass and drums respectively, the band is sounding stronger than ever. Hill has also brought her brother into the songwriting process to form a collaboration of all three members. Kerchief’s new material balances the energetic alt-rock sound with electronic elements within a solid songwriting package. The cohesive sound further showcases Hill’s vocal abilities, as well as well sung vocal harmonies with the connective songwriting Kerchief has built its name on. The lead single from the eight song LP is “Evil Parts.” Kerchief continues to be a stimulating sound in the indie-rock genre and that is no fluke, but the result of excellent songwriting and the love of shaping solid music.
