Indie rock artist Indigo De Souza exemplifies putting one’s soul into their music. Her dynamically complex discography offers emotional confessions and raw vocals, often shaking with passion and constantly contrasting her yells with softer croons, ranging into an objectively impressive higher register. Though dropping a few songs prior, her first prominent release was her 2018 album I Love My Mom, featuring her largest hit, the snarky “Take Off Ur Pants”, alongside more underrated tracks, such as “Home Team” and “What Are We Gonna Do Now.” Her 2021 album Any Shape You Take boasts a more developed sound musically and lyrically, with lines such as “I won’t be cruel when you find / That you don’t need a girl to feel better” in the “Late Night Crawler” and featuring pre-recorded screams on centerpiece song “Real Pain.” Seemingly always on tour, most recently as an opener for indie artist Lucy Dacus and now featured on the Pitchfork Music Festival lineup, it is clear that the world still has a lot more to hear from Indigo De Souza.
