    Katie Pruitt is living proof of music’s power to transform the way we experience the world. Soon
    after the arrival of her acclaimed debut Expectations—a 2020 LP on which she documented her
    journey in growing up queer in the Christian South—the Georgia-bred singer/songwriter/guitarist
    heard from countless listeners that her songs had impacted their lives on an elemental level. With
    her sophomore album Mantras, the Nashville-based musician now looks inward to explore such
    matters as gender identity, self-compassion or the lack thereof, and the struggle for peace in times of
    chaos and uncertainty—ultimately arriving at a body of work that speaks to the strength in undoing
    harmful self-beliefs and fully living your truth.
    Mainly produced by Collin Pastore and Jake Finch (known for their work with boygenius and Lucy
    Dacus), Mantras delves deeper into the empathetic storytelling and incisive self-examination that
    defined Expectations—an album that earned Pruitt a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year
    from the Americana Music Association and drew praise from major outlets like Rolling Stone (who
    hailed Pruitt as a “dynamic new presence”) and Pitchfork (who noted that “[h]er songs are patient
    but determined, navigating serious subjects with quiet familiarity”). This time around, Pruitt sets her
    lived-in lyricism to a folk-leaning sound informed by her love for the more experimental edges of
    indie-rock, stacking her songs with plenty of propulsive grooves and overdriven guitars as well as
    working with musicians like string arranger Laura Epling (Orville Peck, Spencer Cullum).
    Although several songs took shape with the help of co-writers like singer/songwriter Ruston Kelly
    (Bethany Cosentino, Amanda Shires), Pruitt wrote most of Mantras on her own and imbued her
    lyrics with an expansive element of autobiography. In penning the album-opening “All My Friends
    (Are Finding New Beliefs),” she mined inspiration from a Christian Wiman poem of the same name,
    dreaming up a fuzzed-out and summery track etched with both self-aware reflection and sharp-
    witted observation on the search for clarity and purpose. Next, on “White Lies, White Jesus and
    You,” Pruitt shares a hazy yet frenetic meditation on hypocrisy in religion, tapping into her intense
    frustration with conservative Christian ideology. A profoundly introspective album, Mantras turns
    the lens on her own inner life with songs like “Self Sabotage”—a gloriously cathartic track that
    opens up about her struggle with negative thought loops. Meanwhile, on “Blood Related,” Pruitt
    presents a raw but poetic rumination on how family can sometimes feel like strangers, enlisting her
    mother as a background vocalist and embedding the track with audio recordings of her father and
    brother from old home videos. And while Mantras often pushes into emotionally heavy terrain, its
    songs frequently echo the radiant sense of joy and discovery that defined the album-making process.
    On “Naive Again,” for instance, Pruitt infuses the bright and dreamy tones of glockenspiel and
    xylophone into her melancholy contemplation on loss of innocence.
    Looking over the tracklist to Mantras, Pruitt notes that a certain narrative thread emerged without
    her intention. “I didn’t realize it at the time, but the throughline for this record ended up being my
    own personal journey of letting go and learning how to love myself again—it begins with tension,
    frustration, and fear and resolves to a place of acceptance, surrender, and stillness,” she says. “I hope
    when people hear the record they feel what I felt after writing it, which was a sense of trusting
    myself and trusting that—no matter how bad things look—there’s always hope where there’s fear. I
    know that so much of the time we feel alone in our pain, so hopefully these songs help everyone to
    see that they can work through those big life changes and end up loving themselves a lot more.”
