The band have important things to say on Good Citizens, with opening track Better Than That a response to the marriage equality plebiscite. Savage is still hurting and this hurt can be heard across the album as she grapples with the injustices of the world. Savage also shows her softer side on the more personal February and Sunday, both tracks rich in romantic sentiment. In the midst of a world in crisis there’s often little to be optimistic about, but with music this victorious, it feels as though there might be something to be hopeful about after all.
Good Citizensis out Sept 21 via Milestone.
