ten soul-shattering songs of brutally honest lyrical unburdening worthy of Keaton henson, mournful pianowork, sweeping strings, vocals that recall julien baker’s deep melancholic yearning &  even an early bon iver-esque ear for melody in places – we love it.

this haunting & introspective full-length debut further introduces the 22-year-old as a singular voice. There is a delicate balance to her work; a dance between veiled narratives & earnest emotions between whispers & shouts. Throughout the album, she contemplates & reflects on personal experiences through her unique lyric writing perspective: there are overt references to lost idols, canonical pop songs & actual incidents, but her stories unfold through specific, evocative imagery sung in her subtle, confessional style. “I wasn’t trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, too disingenuous…I feel pretty confident that I’m finding my voice,” says Bridgers.
