“That’s not nothing.”
They are three words that keep Amelia Curran going on the hard days; ones that remind her to expect less of herself every now and again. To accept that — as a mental health advocate, feminist and Newfoundland artist in a tough, Toronto-centric industry — sometimes stepping back and only doing laundry in a 24-hour period is not nothing. It gives her room to breathe.
On Watershed, Curran’s new and eighth full-length, it’s clear that she has been needing to take a lot of breaths. Her trademark-sharp lyrics relay experiences of misogyny, frustration, internet bullies, depression. Throughout these 11 tracks Curran is louder — “brazen, is the word I settled on” — in words and sound than she has ever been, detailing exactly what she won’t stand for (“No More Quiet,” “Gravity”) while still finding tenderness on a signature folk ballad like “Act of Human Kindness.” The result is a lyrical work that is achingly, necessarily human. - CBC MUSIC
