The Ballroom Thieves – Sundust

The Ballroom Thieves by Meredith Brockington

As acclaimed indie folk band The Ballroom Thieves wrote and recorded their 5th full-length Sundust, one central question emerged as the theme: “What if we could all just be a little more tender?” The duo – Calin Peters (vocals, cello, bass) and Martin Earley (vocals, guitar) – started to ponder what they could do to be more self-aware of their mental health and those around them in a world oversaturated by social media, pop culture, and digital consumption. The result is a lush, 10-track collection of thoughts on the human experience. It’s about self-awareness, breaking down walls that trauma creates, and healing from harshness, while also finding the glimmers, the striking beauty of being a person, and a longing for connection with people.


On the inspiration behind these songs, the duo shares, “These songs are a tender exploration on breaking cycles and living with more compassion and kindness.”

To celebrate the release of Sundust, The Ballroom Thieves will embark on an upcoming headline tour starting April 25 at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn and making stops in Nashville at The Basement, Boston at The Sinclair, and more before wrapping up in Northampton at Iron Horse Music Hall on June 2.
