Words by Ursa Gregson
Findlay has released her second album 'Last of the 20th Century Girls' in partnership with Kartel Music Group.
Highlight 'Somehow, Someday' is a brash and powerful track befitting night-time desert drives, cactus' and diesel. The song, and especially the vocal performance, hark towards classic powers like Jefferson Airplane and more modern influences like Mattiel.

‘The Last of the 20th Century Girls’ is Findlay's most open, vulnerable and introspective body of work yet. Drawing upon her own personal experiences since the release of her debut album ‘Forgotten Pleasures’, the multi-skilled artist explores complex, fully-realised themes ranging from grief and loss to the struggle of losing and re-building one’s confidence, through challenges and pitfalls. And there’s technological prowess across the board, with mastering by five-time Grammy Awards winning engineer Antoine ‘Chab’ Chabert (Daft Punk, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sebastien Tellier), production and mixing by French multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer Jules Apollinaire (Black Honey, Sophie And The Giant, Suki Waterhouse), who is also Findlay’s bandmate in TTRRUUCES, as well as Grammy and MPG awards winning mixing engineer Caesar Edmunds (Foals, PJ Harvey, St Vincent, Beach House).
