"The video for [“Builder”] … is about the ties that bind and also the ties that confine."- Bob Boilen, NPR<br><br>"… what Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings would sound like if they could sing." - AudioFuzz<br><br>"“Builder” could be considered the five-and-a-half minute equivalent of the most penetrating, burning smolder of a stare humanly possible." - Fuzzy Logic<br><br>Humble Fire’s album Builder explores physical and emotional experiences around loss and reconstruction, from family deaths and failed romances to the shocks and stresses they have navigated as a band.
Through those experiences, they’ve come to appreciate that reconstruction isn’t something you can tackle on your own: it requires an entire crew. Builder, then, is as much about that process of putting yourself back together, as it is about the relationships that can help or hinder that process. Since Humble Fire’s members have known each other over the past five or so years, they’ve all shown up for each other in different ways as part of that reconstruction crew. They’re lucky to have found family in each other in that way.
