Dominionated review: Angry

“Shamik and Shraya (whose gorgeous solo album Part-Time Woman was a consciousness-raising stand-out of 2017) have unleashed one of the most pronounced and electrifying Canadian albums of the past decade; Angry has the potential to shape conversations around racialized and marginalized communities in this country and beyond for years to come.”
