Snap Scene: Feist, The Forum – Friday 1st December 2017

Five years on from her last Australian visit, Feist returns with a full band in tow and a brand new album under her belt. Pleasure, Feist’s fifth studio record and first in six years, reflects on secrets and shame, loneliness and tenderness, care and fatigue and is at it’s core a study on self-awareness.

Pleasure builds off the warm naturalism of the Polaris Prize-winning Metals and emerges as Feist’s most formally defiant and expansive work so far. And while each album marks a departure from the next, Pleasure finds Feist again showing the extraordinary depth of her artistry.

Feist’s towering live performances have gained her worldwide acclaim, with the musician swinging between whispers and wails, from luminous ballads to the unhinged guitars also heard in her work with Broken Social Scene.

Possessing a nomadic, ever-evolving spirit with echoes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and fellow Canadian Leonard Cohen, Feist’s recent six year sabbatical saw her side-step any pop traps set by the immense success of The Reminder and Metals, the latter of which debuted at No.9 on the Billboard Chart and was named Album of the Year by the New York Times.
