Tucker's label debut, 2019's "Never Not Never Not Never Not," was lavished with praise by NPR, Stereogum, Paste and many more. It landed Tucker – who uses they/them pronouns – onstage supporting kindred spirits like Phoebe Bridgers, Soccer Mommy, Vagabon and Remo Drive. "Never Not" was named 2019's Album of the Year by influential indie music blog The Alternative – follow up singles "Ambrosia," with its indelible "AAAAAAAAAAAAH," and "Brand New Beast," with its bitter chorus exclaiming "You won't even eat me out!" continued to cement Tucker's place as a singular songwriter and artist. Tucker’s songs echo cult-favorite songwriters of the 1960s: Buffy Sainte-Marie, Sibylle Baier, Norma Tanega, Karen Dalton. Like them, Tucker uses vulnerable and rich images of the world, and while the lyrics have political implications, politics are not the first concern of the songs. “I’m a big fan of musical eccentrics,” Tucker says. “The spontaneous approach to music that Erik Satie took: he only ate eggs for a long time. He bought seven velvet suits and tried to start a religion. He composed music toiling in obscurity.
“I like art that happens when people toil in obscurity, although I guess that's not my goal right now.”
