The follow up to 2013's critically lauded 'Cerulean Salt', 'Ivy Tripp' drifts confidently from its predecessor and displays a more informed and powerful recognition of where Katie Crutchfield (Waxahatchee) currently finds herself. The previous themes of loss of youth and coming of age have been replaced with self control and sheer honesty; "My life has changed a lot in the last two years, and it's been hard for me to process my feelings other than by writing songs," says Crutchfield. "I think a running theme [of Ivy Tripp] is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming." Recorded and engineered by Kyle Gilbride of Wherever Audio at Crutchfield's home on New York's Long Island - with drums recorded in the gym of a local elementary school - Ivy Tripp presents a more developed and grown up version of Waxahatchee; "The title Ivy Tripp is really just a term I made up for directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents. I have thought of it like this: Cerulean Salt is a solid and Ivy Tripp is a gas.
