Angie McMahon

Angie McMahon first entered the cultural consciousness with her breakthrough 2017 indie-rock classic ‘Slow Mover’ and in 2019 released her debut album Salt, a record that would go on to cement her as a globally recognised artist.

Bringing a deeply emotive approach to her music with ethereal notes in the vein of Angel Olsen and Florence and the Machine, and an explosive live show reminiscent of Big Thief and The War on Drugs, Angie McMahon has become renowned for her truthful storytelling that speaks to the unpolished and messy experiences of life. 

Angie McMahon comes undone then heals slowly and strangely on her second album Light, Dark, Light Again; After feeling like her life had been falling apart, she turned to nature – to murmurations of birds, the swaying of trees, movements in the sea. The quiet but transformative revelations she had about life in this time have been poured into the 13 songs on the album on which she examines her relationship with self, and the journey to becoming okay with whoever she is, and whatever the future holds. The quiet poetry of McMahon’s lyrics will serve as a buoy to anyone facing their own fear, empowering and encouraging them to go forward. 

Full of delicate, raw and gentle lyricism, and imagery of nature and astrology, the record documents a storyteller at the peak of her powers.

Light, Dark, Light Again was recorded slowly and purposefully across a year between Angie McMahon’s home city of Naarm/Melbourne with Alex O’Gorman and Bonnie Knight, and the North Carolina town of Durham. In the latter – where the majority of the album’s tracks came together – she worked alongside esteemed Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee, Snail Mail).

Completing the studio band was Bon Iver drummer Matt McCaughan, Canadian singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk and Megafaun musician Phil Cook. The chance to travel abroad and collaborate with artists whose work she so admires felt like a dream come true for McMahon. She also found being free from a set timeline, able to go slow and trust the timing of the universe was a liberator – getting to take her songs across the world and create with friends new and old helped make them more expansive, more real and more resonant.
