Indigo De Souza – Any Shape Of You – Limited Edition, Tangerine Vinyl, LP, Saddle Creek, 2021

Limited tangerine vinyl LP pressing. “Everything has to be said.” This is the conviction guiding Indigo de Souza’s sophomore album, Any Shape You Take. This dynamic record successfully creates a container for the full spectrum-pushing through and against every emotion: “I wanted this album to give a feeling of shifting with and embracing change. These songs came from a turbulent time when I was coming to self-love through many existential crises and shifts in perspective. ” Faithful to it’s name, Any Shape You Take changes form to match the tenor of each story it tells. “The album title is a nod to the many shapes I take musically. I don’t feel that I fully embody any particular genre-all of the music just comes from the universe that is my ever-shifting brain/heart/world,” says Indigo. This sonic range is unified by Indigo’s strikingly confessional and effortless approach to songwriting, a signature first introduced in her debut, self-released LP, I Love My Mom. Written in quick succession, Indigo sees these two records as companion pieces, both distinct but in communion with each other: “Many of the songs on these two records came from the same season in my life and a certain version of myself which I feel much further from now. ”
