other noteworthy moments on the album are songs about love, loss, identity, and reckoning such as; the shimmering “sweet hereafter,” the iridescent breakup song “everything,” the deliciously troubled “all those words,” the pop-driven “i am” of “no ordinary girl,” and soulful art-country-tinged love songs like “where would i be” and “straight on til morning.” two "smashing" moments on the album are “northern light” and “take me there."

“northern light’ is the moment on the album where the "ceiling" is musically-metaphorically broken” says magdalen, “while recording “take me there” there was a moment of effortless musical convergence during the take. “take me there” is about going back the place inside yourself where you are whole and creativity exists in it's purest state. I am able to access that place through songwriting, thus i am never happier or more fulfilled than when i am writing songs.
