Mannequin Pussy deserve to be loved. Their fourth album, I Got Heaven, finds the Philadelphia band at their most cathartic, innovative and disillusioned. Half of the record is wrapped in this deeply provocative pop sensibility – while the other half is abrasive scorn-filled hardcore punk. A delicate balance, but one the band expertly manoeuvrer through.

Switching seamlessly, the album echoes how exhausting it is having to navigate through a brutal and unkind world; the sadness and the unbridled rage. More of a collaborative effort than ever before, Mannequin Pussy are firing on all cylinders. Walls of distorted guitars act as societal barriers whilst dynamic shifts hit equally as hard as they devastate. A visceral record that screams “what are we living for?”
