Jade Bird sings with a fire and calloused animosity that is so special. She’s tells it exactly how it is; I don’t think she even knows what “sugar coating” means. On the single, “Uh Huh”, Bird lays into a man who is being played by his lady, and humiliating him, as he previously did to her. “If you’re thinking that she’s good. God knows, God knows. She got you on your knees like a little boy. Everybody sees that you’re just a little toy.” This shows her sharp personality, one that she proudly radiates. Because of this, she knows that she needs an equally edgy partner, as she sings “You are good and you are pure. The angel knocking at my door. But I need something, something more.” Overall, the album is extremely consistent, with no slow points at all. Bird has all the talent in the world, it will be fun to watch her take on the music industry.
