Album Review: Rose Cousins, ‘Bravado’
It’s snarky and wry. It is where the humorous banter of Cousins’s live show finally sneaks into her songwriting—no small task. The fact that Cousins includes both versions of the song within the same album bears comment, as this juxtaposition is the presumed theme. And anyway, this is what we can do with music: Hide behind it or allow it to be a vehicle for truly seeing each other.
Press play and see what you can find. If it starts to feel like too much, don’t worry. It’s just emotion.
Bravado is available via Outside Music at Apple Music and Amazon.
