Album Review: Phoebe Bridgers – Punisher

Posted on 19 Jun 2020 at 7:19am

It seems that the release of Fiona Apple’s Fetch The Bolt Cutters might have been a turning point for women making music, both in the way they’re perceived and the creative pressure they experience to mould with conformity. Abandoned and switching from good to bad cop and back again, the singer’s courageous approach has netted streaming numbers in the tens of millions.

Phoebe Bridgers is a fan, and the pair have an unwanted common bond in experiencing the fallout from abusive relationships; Bridgers was one of the numerous alleged victims of Ryan Adams’ exploitative behaviour, a bruising experience recounted on Motion Sickness from her debut album Stranger In The Alps.

Like Apple, it feels like the singer’s new record is an attempt to re-calibrate what being a successful female artist means in her own terms – take Kyoto, one of Punisher’s most energetic moments, her sometimes lonely guitar bolstered by an upfront brass section, drums and bass. It might sound like this is a person wanting to break the glass ceiling which boxes in girl troubadours, but in fact the song is about feeling guilty for the privilege you yourself have earned.
