“The Woman Who Pays” Review:
Inspired by a late friend of her daughter-in-law who was murdered in an act of domestic violence, the single encapsulates what it means to be a woman. The track covers domestic violence and addresses the various layers of abuse. It is a gender-based take on this violence and honors these women through a mixture of subtle guitar-lines and western-esque vocals. The song carries an almost airy harmony with a straightforward rhythm that has this western film feel. However, there is a disastrous beauty in what she sings. The lyrics are dramatic and put emphasis on the staggering pains women in these violent scenarios endure. The song is impactful, soothing, and will leave listeners thinking about this silenced issue for hours.
