A master stroke.

Words by

Bianca O'Neill

Working with producer Eric J (Chet Faker, Flume, The Rubens) was a master stroke for Mitchell’s third album. The combination of an edgier soundscape and her pretty, haunting vocals has delivered some really great work, particularly in the title track.

Mitchell has said Warriors is a more personal album, reflecting on her younger years and conjuring up memories of youthful desires. There are wistful references to hearts running wild and riding in cars with boys. 

It’s a transitional album that still drives Mitchell’s work forward creatively and I’m looking forward to another Sunday session with this happy-go-lucky LP.
