Despite being Allison’s very first release, Clean is a remarkably accomplished album that puts candid storytelling and sparse instrumentation at the forefront. Allison sings openly about being in an emotionally abusive relationship on Your Dog, jealousy on Last Girl and waiting around for something that’s never going to happen on Still Clean. The result is a collection of powerful songs that feels like an extension of your own consciousness – a gift few can claim to possess. Allison is no doubt set for a career as one of the most exciting singer-songwriters of her generation.
Clean is out now via Fat Possum/Inertia.
