🎵 Sour (Olivia Rodrigo)

Listened 2021 studio album by Olivia Rodrigo from Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.

Sour (stylized in all caps) is the debut studio album by American singer and songwriter Olivia Rodrigo, released on May 21, 2021, via Geffen Records. It was produced by Dan Nigro, who co-wrote the album alongside Rodrigo. Inspired by Rodrigo’s favorite genres and singer-songwriters, Sour is primarily a pop and alt-pop record that sprawls between energetic pop punk songs and bedroom pop ballads. Its subject matter centers on adolescence, failed romance and heartache.

I was intrigued to hear this album. I think Chris Deville captures it best:

It feels like one of those albums that, while too flawed to be hailed as a masterpiece, will linger as a generational touchstone, a time capsule from an era when blockbuster pop music veered toward folk, rock, and searing vulnerability.

Place between Lorde and Amy Shark.
