Today one of Aotearoa’s most prolific songwriters releases her debut solo album. The arrival of The War On Peace Of Mind by Dianne Swann (The Bads) marks a well fought career decades in the making.
Coming in at a concise eight songs, and produced by Swann, she wanted the album to be short, sharp, and focussed. The War On Peace Of Mind showcases Swann’s presence with hints of vulnerability to her voice.
The eight songs shift between cautious optimism and stark truths. An album that finds itself commanding your attention and an album that is surely to be one of 2021’s best.
