The perfect example of an artist moving forward, without losing any of the magic that first brought her to our attention.

Label: Jagjaguwar
Released: September 2nd 2016
Rating: ★★★★

"It's clear I'm not going anywhere" Olsen says on 'My Woman' lead single 'Shut Up Kiss Me' and tbh, she's not wrong. Crafting albums up to this kind of standard, she'll be around for a while yet. My Woman is the follow-up to 2014's Burn Your Fire For No Witness, portraying an Olsen that continues to write punching indie-pop but with a bite that'll sting you right in the feels. It's emotive – devastating at times – yet Olsen is a master when it comes to not taking herself too seriously.



You'll find yourself shouting "preach!" to the frustrated 'Not Gonna Kill You'; you'll marvel at the droning beauty of opener 'Intern', before tearing up to the line "Still gotta wake up and be someone" and you'll definitely need to find a nice quiet place to lie down after the crushing 'Woman'.

'My Woman' is an established, almost polished Olsen, that sees the songwriter wearing her heart on her sleeve but with a confidence that wasn't immediately noticeable on her previous releases. Her vocal delivery is poignant and impressive throughout, the production providing a well-thought-out platform that allows Olsen's best work to shine. The perfect example of an artist moving forward, without losing any of the magic that first brought her to our attention. Sammy Maine
