‘if i could make it go quiet’ is a project which sounds vastly different than the rest of girl in red’s catalogue. it sees marie ulven taking an unconventional direction for her first official lp.

this album is very much appreciated; ulven’s efforts come across as emotionally relatable, especially on “.” and “midnight love”.

some of this record is hit or miss, and “body and mind” is a prime example of when the new style truly hits. a song such as “body and mind” is the reason why i chose to listen to ‘if i could make it go quiet’. i knew marie ulven had many things planned for this debut album that sounded different than her previous work.

most of the lyrics on this entire project standout in skill and thoughtfulness. girl in red is one of the most important and essential songwriters of a generation.

additionally, marie shows us she can spit some rhymes at high speed on “serotonin”.

while the middle of this album kinda misses its target, the music still gets its ideas across in a nice manner. the lyrics often entertain enough to make up for when the music flops.
