As frontwoman of Muncie Girls, Lande Hekt knows her way around a hook and melody and this is easily evidenced on this, her sophomore solo release. There’s two sides to this record and she flits between them seamlessly. First there’s the big band choruses we’re used to on Undone and the jangly December. Yet it’s the stripped back acoustic element that is more captivating.

Winter Coat is a fittingly-2020 lament for missing friends, whilst closer In the Darkness is a defiant protest song with two fingers raised firmly at the government. Whiskey brilliantly showcases a vocal that is so often hidden behind a wall of guitars and Candle is a brightly shining lullaby with touring partner and producer Ben David of the Hard Aches.
