On the heels of her excellent gloomy and introspective 2018 EP, “Interpersonal”, Taylor Janzen played a great set at SXSW , The Austin Chronicle wrote that “she’s about to become an absolute star,” the combination of the best aspects of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. For as great as last year’s EP was, I was even further blown away by the newer material I heard she was playing, a handful of more uptempo, more rock-adjacent tracks that saw her voice soar to impressive heights.

Those songs were corralled together on May’s Shouting Matches, a five-track EP showcasing a much different side of Janzen’s songwriting, a much more powerful one where she maintains that same level of personal reflection, now pairing it with catchy melodies and more in-your-face backing instrumentals. And I wasn’t the only one who thought that she’s about to become a star: Janzen had recently signed with Glassnote Records and released a new single, “What I Do…,” a slightly poppier track that sees her add even more pep than everything she’s released prior. The sky is truly the limit for Janzen, a songwriter who could easily be indie’s biggest breakout in 2020
