about

Adult Angst Anonymous (AAA) the album brings together a collection of songs which all hold an element of angst. The Cheek of Her believes that we can suffer from angst at any age, and it’s not merely the plight of adolescents (or Artists)!

She has experienced serious bouts of angst during the making of the album: questioning herself about what the hell she is doing; why she isn’t settled down with kids and a dog like a ‘good woman’ should at her age rather than locking herself away to write ‘angry songs’ and battling doubts in her abilities and the future in general!

Seems like everyone nowadays wants to be famous, or they’re deemed a failure. You can only succeed in the music industry if you dress sexy or not at all like Miley Cyrus and well, why are we becoming more consumed than ever with exteriors when our minds and souls are more often than not far more messed up!

Adult Angst Anonymous the album is a less “grand” sounding affair production-wise than the previous EP Megaphonic, in that there are not tons of guitar layers in every track and the piano is a key element, which also reflects TCOHs acceptance of herself in the frame without hiding behind the Guitars! One producer wasn’t enough for TCOH on this album, so she co-produced and recorded with two!

Half the tracks were recorded with Sean Kennedy and half with Joe Lonsdale who have totally ‘got’ the whole TCOH vibe, and let her be as zany, mad and ‘out of the grid’ as she wants to be! Sean then mixed and mastered AAA in its entirety.

Key elements remain constant: big beats; punchy vocal deliveries; some super hooks and beautiful melodies, but there’s a realness to the whole album that brings the listener in far closer than ever before. There are musical stories to be told, and TCOH invites you to listen.

TCOH writes music because it chose her, and she means every word she sings! She’s not looking to be a flashy superstar, she just wants her music to be heard, understood and appreciated, which would hopefully encourage people to buy a track or two to make her music making sustainable and kill the angst…
