Amy O Is What We Need
Next week we’ll finally get to hear the entirety of Amy O‘s new album, Elastic, and with that, she’s teased us with another excellent single. There’s something in her songwriting, particularly on this track that reminds me of early Tegan and Sara or Rilo Kiley; it has an innocent vibe, with cutting commentary bubbling beneath the song’s surface. Amy says this was the final track recorded for her new record, so its nice to think of this track as a “final goodbye, until we meet again” moment. We’ll meet again on August 4th when the record is released via Winspear; they’ll also have a limited edition zine Yoko Oh Yes featuring interviews and conversations with female musicians if you pre-order the LP!
