Deau Eyes’ anticipated sophomore album Legacies — a sprawling, majestic exploration of what it means to “leave things behind that have integrity and meaning” — began when an ex called, asking if she wanted to make plans to go to Moscow. Part of her loved the idea, but an older, wiser part knew that wasn’t her anymore. She turned this personal inflection point into “Moscow in the Spring,” a dreamy pop number haloed in the hazy glow of starry synths and tinkling sleigh bells.

Recorded between her closet and the respective studios of producers Scott Lane and DJ Harrison, Legacies came together with more intention than the flash-bang intensity of her Let It Leave debut, which was taped in a matter of days with longtime friends Jacob Blizard and Collin Pastore (Lucy Dacus, illuminati hotties, Julien Baker). Over four months, Thibodeau spent her days waitressing, then rushed over to Lane’s studio to craft the sounds of Legacies deep into the night. The resulting 10-song set is an undeniably cinematic journey, informed by her love of artists from Brandi Carlile to Emily King to Fiona Apple.
