Following up her 2021 top 10 album was always going to be a challenge but Jenkins has taken to it with aplomb - which is reflected in the musical journey that she leads us on.

There are soft curls of indie pop that wash in like waves, bold and bombastic sonic pyrotechnics, dream-like field recordings, and it's all synched together by the enticing narratives she deploys via her marvellous, breathy voice.

Big tip if 'Punisher' twangs your heart strings.

What’s most remarkable about 'My Light, My Destroyer' is  that it captures an artist at an exciting leap in her evolution. So much about the album feels of-a-kind with its predecessors; field recordings and found sound permeate, narrative songwriting crashes into heady, swirling compositions. Jenkins sings with what can only be described as a power-whisper (think Sufjan Stevens, Annie Lennox, Margo Timmins or YHF-era Tweedy), her vocals up close and intimate but subtly confrontational. But it all feels bigger here, more finely honed, bolder and richer than her previous work and than her peers.

Songs like 'Devotion', 'Delphinium Blue', 'Clams Casino', 'Echo', and 'Only One', speak to the liberating quality of focused observation, even to the point of disillusionment. “There’s this idea about disillusionment that I’ve held onto,” she says. “I really appreciate disillusionment as a process to discover new, unexpected outcomes. We let go of expectations this way. Expectations hold us back. It’s easy to focus on jadedness or disappointment but I actually see it more as freedom.”
