The Brooklyn artist plumbs darker depths than before, offsetting her stark lyrics with bright, jangling melodies in the search for inner-peace.

Consummation is a bold step forward and confirmation that Katie von Schleicher has a great deal to offer and should be creating satisfying music for a long time to come.

New York-based artist newest effort brings on the good in chamber pop and laced with her own distinct individuality, coupled with sparse lyricism and jangly melodies, up par to her 2017’s Shitty Hits. She distinctly reminds me of her contemporaries, highly of Aldous Harding or Angel Olsen with her inspiration towards fractured relationships. This is a good one.
It treads that fine line between standard folk pop and deconstructed, haunting pop with devastating affect. Didn't expect much coming into this one, so I'm pleasantly surprised.
"Consummation" is an indie rock album with elements of dream pop and indie pop music, so is a mellow record. Katie Von Schleicher's warm and ethereal vocals make the album Airy and Stylish. "Katie Von Schleicher" focuses on themes of love, abuse,depression and self-harm, and manages to keep a balance.
