Album Release: Thelma Plum – Better in Blak

Some two years in the making and recorded across New York, London and Sydney with key collaborator and producer Alex Burnett (Anthony & Cleopatra, Sparkadia), Better In Blak showcases Thelma Plum at her best; brutally honest, with her heart on her sleeve and emotions ranging from laugh-out-loud self-effacing jibes to brutal and sometimes bleak self-reflection; it’s an inside look at the Gamilaraay musician’s life.

The album is a shot in the arm for Australian music, with synth bops (Woke Blokes), pop steppers (Not Angry Anymore) and some beautifully minimal moments (the one-take voice and guitar gut-wrencher Do You Ever Get So Sad You Can’t Breathe). Plum moves effortlessly between the anthemic (Don’t Let A Good Girl Down) and the slightly lighter (Nick Cave) and the Hottest 100 #79 and ARIA Gold Clumsy Love), it’s a wide sonic palette that just works and will solidify Plum as one of the country’s brightest songwriting talents.
