Thin Lear is Matt Long, a record producer and singer based in Queens who has a new album – ‘Wooden Cave’ – from which ‘Death in a Field‘ is taken. It’s something of a genre twisting cut, moving from a pedal steel intro towards an almost jazzy outro. It’s languid and dreamlike along the way as it meditates on death and rebirth. Thin Lear has commented that “the song aims to connect the listener to a feeling or a memory of something sad or wonderful from years ago, maybe something they haven’t thought about in a while…a person or a moment.”
