Our feature album this week is from Perth musician Stella Donnelly with her highly anticipated debut-album Beware of the Dogs.
Stella first emerged into the public’s eye with the release of her two singles Mechanical Bull and Boys Will Be Boys in 2017. Generating widespread attention on triple j and triple j Unearthed, the two tracks launched her from a local artist to an internationally recognised talent.
Two years on from the release of these songs, Stella has returned to share her debut full-length release Beware of the Dogs. A fierce statement against social systems and authority, the album features exceptional lyricism and vocal performances across all 13 tracks. Tackling topics related to toxic masculinity, feelings of displacement, empowerment, and unease; the album is emotionally dense and moving.
Featured Tracks: Old Man, Tricks, Boys Will Be Boys, Lunch, and U Owe Me.
