Very Serious Rock Critic Steven Hyden once called this artist "the Stone Temple Pilots of Soccer Mommy/Clairo indie singer/songwriters"
OK but first - welcome to 2021 the Year of Julien Baker everybody!!!!!
It's a queer Christian singer-songwriter doing a cover of a Lil Peep classic!
Honestly, Semler is the most interesting sorry I'm music so far this year for me. She recently put out a new EP called "Preacher's Kid" and labeled it as a Christian EP (it very much is exactly that), and then through word of mouth and a couple of very strategic retweets, got enough listeners to unseat the mighty Lauren Daigle at #1 on iTunes, if only for a little while.
The EP itself is an amazing companion to anyone who felt a little out of place in 90s youth group culture. "Jesus From Texas" is the heavy hitter and obvious standout (and would absolutely be the video here if a live version existed), but the whole thing straddles the line between (very) righteous indignation and hopeful belief in such a way that it lit a fire in me that I thought was long since extinguished. Great stuff.
Without question, I listened to more Taylor Swift in 2020 than I have in any preceding year. And this is 100% my favorite song from folklore.
I was hoping my favorite Sad 2020 Artist would have a Sad Christmas Song too
