ALBUM REVIEW: Angie McMahon – Salt

Angie McMahon

Okay okay okay. I’m excited. Angie McMahon released her long awaited debut album Salt last week, featuring well-known tracks such as Keeping Time, Slow Mover and Pasta. To say this album is a beautiful compilation of meaningful lyrics and melodies that make your heart hurt would probably be the best way to explain it, and honestly it’s more than us Angie fans could’ve hoped for. Some of the new songs including Soon, Push and Play The Game have been my own personal favourites as well as fan favourites, however (and I think you know where this is going…) Standout was definitely a standout.

This beautiful and euphoric acoustic tune delves into a painful breakup, and you can really hear the pain and almost confusion in her voice. Whether or not Angie writes these songs based on her own personal experiences or not I’m not sure, but either way I just want to give her a huge hug.

“I don’t want someone
I don’t want someone
I wanted you”

Angie has been playing shows in the US and has just played shows in Ireland as well as Budapest for the Sziget festival – one of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe (a huge achievement for our Aussie girl!)—before heading back home for the I Made An Album Australian Tour in October.

Thank you for making the music you do Angie.

If you haven’t heard Salt yet, I suggest you get your hands on either a hard copy—available here—or have a listen over on Spotify!
