The Copycat Killer EP put a fresh spin on Phoebe Bridgers’ Punisher album.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has directed the video for Savior Complex, while Emmy-nominated Paul Mescal is the star turn on Phoebe Bridgers‘ latest single.

Updated versions of this track, Kyoto, Chinese Satellite and Punisher featured on the Copycat Killer EP when it was released last month, recorded with arranger and string player Rob Moose.

“Bridgers has a nineties child’s knack of being able to zoom in and out focus, to stack the banal and the vital next to each other; opener Garden Song is as wistfully beautiful as anything on her debut, but she confesses, ‘And when I grow up, I’m gonna look up/From my phone and see my life, before dousing a relationship with apathy: ‘You touch my leg, and I insist/But I wake up before we do it’,” our Punisher review reads.

“It’s not unexpected, but is understandable, that some of this bravery to speak comes from strength in numbers: Punisher features contributions from Connor Oberst, as well as Nathaniel Walcott (of Bright Eyes), Nick Zinner (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Jenny Lee Lindberg (of Warpaint) and Blake Mills. Of the results, the singer has declared without hubris: ‘I really love Punisher. If people hate it, I’m not scared.’”
