On Blunt Chunks’ debut self-titled EP, Toronto-based artist Caitlin Woelfle-O’Brien grapples with the many functions of heartache; as a mechanism to memorialize the past, and the first step to breaking a cycle of self-neglect.
Embracing a weightless style of guitar-driven pop, Woelfle-O’Brien blends spacious psychedelic country with the unignorable churn of 90s alternative rock. The result is a record deeply uncomfortable with secrets. Woelfle-O’Brien opts to honour — with a Dolly Parton-esque devotion to clarity — her motivations for past entanglements, both devastating and exalting. And yet, the EP rings with a quiet optimism, steadfast in its search for the kind of love that’s attentive, honest, and transformative.
