It’s really heartening to hear new work from the legendary Kill Rock Stars label. Shaylee’s “Audrey” recounts the tragic story of a young trans woman who took her own life in Shaylee’s community. Shaylee reflects on the uncanny similarities between the two – both trans women and multi-instrumentalists – “Audrey” reflects on a missed connection while contemplating the deep similarities between the two. A longing, spiritual connection shared through common pain. “Audrey” breaks out towards the end into a deeply cathartic, anthem led by Shaylee’s impassioned vocals and highly expressionistic guitar playing.
