For all its worth, Apocalypse, girl can be described as something of a ‘sign of the times’ record - its lyrical metaphors and occasional uncanny production can appear esoteric, but at its core, Apocalypse, girl is an album that we can all relate to. The way that complex existential thoughts are covered across this record is unbridled. Hval flitters between fantasies and self-doubt, scrutinising both capitalism and herself, reckoning with death yet making it erotic. The contrasting themes that run through Apocalypse, girl may be enigmatic, but still innately human. If anything, Hval’s third solo album is an unrefined overview of the struggles and realisations faced during your 33rd year, something she refers to as her ‘Jesus-age’.
