In a four-star review of ‘Good Woman’, NME’s Ella Kemp said the band have “pulled through a turbulent period to produce a record that’s soulful, sophisticated and forward-thinking.”
In an interview with NME prior to the release, the band’s Milly Staveley-Taylor discussed the record’s title track.
“That particular song was one of the first we started demo-ing in 2017. As time went on, that particular brand of anger or questioning became a common thread across a lot of songs,” she said.
“When it came to naming the album, it seemed like this strongest statement of intent. Especially retrospectively having lost our mother and gained a niece. There’s a lot of female energy in our family.”
