Angie McMahon Announces New Album Salt, Out July 26 On Dualtone

Listen to “And I Am A Woman” Now:

SXSW’s Best Developing International Act playing Newport Folk Festival next month + supporting Hozier on Fall U.S. Tour, including 5 nights at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom

Rising Australian songwriter Angie McMahon will release her debut LP Salt on July 26th via Dualtone Records, an Entertainment One company. After making a name for herself at home over the past few years, Angie garnered millions of streams on her A Couple of Songs EP in March, which was hailed as "a perfect showcase of her gifts as a songwriter and vocalist" by The FADER and led NPR Music to compare her to "a one-woman reincarnation of Fleetwood Mac." Her highly touted SXSW shows resulted in Angie winning the festival's Grulke Prize for Best Developing International Act, an honor previously given to Courtney Barnett, CHVRCHES, and Jade Bird. She'll bring that infectious live energy back to the US next month for the Newport Folk Festival, and again in November for Hozier’s massive fall tour - set to include five nights at New York’s 3,000-capacity Hammerstein Ballroom.

Salt proves that she's just getting started.

Today, Angie has shared her new song "And I Am A Woman" from Salt via Brooklyn Vegan. The song is a powerful and intimate plea for change. In Angie's own words, "There are all these things that our society teaches us about bodies, spaces, choices, feelings, safety, that we have to question and unlearn and do better with." Brooklyn Vegan says “it’s a very powerful song, and as is often the case with Angie McMahon, her highly emotive voice sells it on first listen.”

Preorder Salt here:

The anthemic songs that make up Salt are filled to the brink with quiet emotions and loud riffs, an assured confidence that you can hear right away in album openers “Play The Game” (“I don’t know how to play the game you say that we’re not playing”) and “Soon” (“I can’t let you sweep me off my feet just yet”). “Push” and “Standout,” like much of the album, are slow burns constantly on the brink of exploding in distortion; these are striking yet relatable yearnings channeled through Angie’s DIY ethos and stripped-down electric guitar. And “Mood Song” and “If You Call” are lullabies that bookend the album like a setting sun.

There are also the kiss-off jams of early triple j-approved singles “Missing Me,” “Keeping Time,” and “Slow Mover,” which each have millions of Spotify and Apple Music streams. And then there’s “Pasta,” which might be the most wistful song ever written about takeout.
