The last two years have been a creative whirlwind for Katie Crutchfield, aka Waxahatchee, producing a couple of critically acclaimed albums. Katie however isn't one for resting on her laurels or taking it easy. She is already returning with Waxahatchee's third album Ivy Tripp in April. If the album follows the template of it's impressive first single Air then we can be thankful she's not taking a break.
With it's rippling keyboards, shiny production and ghostly vocal harmonies Air is less fragile and a little higher fi than her earlier work. It also demonstrates a maturing of the themes of loss of youth and coming of age from her last album, Cerulean. Air is a tale of love and loss that Katie embraces with bravery and honesty leaving her ex "out like a carton of milk" and pretending "to be strangers lamenting and means to an end". Air is the sound of Waxahatchee growing up, the sound of Katie stepping across the bridge from adolescence to adulthood.
