Suzannah Espie - Mother's Not Feeling Herself Today

Suzannah Espie - Mother's Not Feeling Herself Today

Suzannah Espie has tackled the subject of motherhood on her new album and it’s a sumptuous and ornate affair that isn’t afraid to venture into the dark, fear-wracked corners of the parental experience. The country soul sound of her music perfectly channels the emotion in her songs with great weight and sensitivity from traditional country to fragile folk. The standout of many highlights is the blues gospel feel of "I’m Sorry ," featuring a 13 piece choir that includes some of Melbourne’s finest female singer/songwriters. Espie’s latest is an honest, heart-wrenching and life-affirming affair.

8/10
