"In the past few years, 25-year-old Sabrina Teitelbaum has transformed into a songwriter without fear. The loud/quiet excavations that comprise her hook-filled self- titled debut as Blondshell don’t only stare traumas in the eye - they tear them at the root and shake them, bringing precise detail to colossal feelings. They’re clear eyed statements of and about digging your way towards confidence, self-possession, and relief. Sabrina shed her previous, pop-leaning project, and the process emboldened her. Subtracting self-consciousness became a catalyst for the lucid songs of Blondshell, on which her experiences all coalesce to form her truest expressions of self yet. “It was me, as a person, in my songs,” she says. When she showed a few to producer Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Girlpool, Porches), he encouraged her to write an album, joining a chorus of friends saying, “This is you.” Powered by brilliant, crystalline melodies, Teitelbaum’s eloquent writing takes root in the concrete: every line is literal, a keyhole to a bigger truth. “I think you watched way too much HBO growing up,” goes ‘Joiner’, a blunt address of formative damage. Blondshell is about learning and unlearning, about untangling the ways we’re taught to accept bad behaviour, about peeling the layers back. These intelligent songs often contain the epiphanies of therapy sessions more than pop sessions, even when the hooks are simply a blast."
