Pioneering Australian musician Evelyn Ida Morris has unveiled their debut release under their own name after many years performing as Pikelet. Here their primary instrument is the piano, as they grapple with their sense of identity as someone who is non-binary, with most songs on the album powerful instrumentals.
The Body Appears is a stunning track that has Morris exploring their body and home, and on Wreck It we encounter an exhilarating piano that feels not too dissimilar to a flurry of thoughts. Meanwhile, Forecast introduces drums into the mix and is perhaps the closest to a pop song on the album. Evelyn Ida Morris is ultimately Morris boldly asserting their identity, with each track finding a way to transfix and surprise.
Evelyn Ida Morris is out now via Remote Control.
