"I guess I know why we romanticize Bonnie & Clyde."
How many times has a song helped you through something difficult? How many times has a song made you feel a bit more understood and a little bit less alone? How many times has a song been the voice for an emotion you didn't even know you were feeling?
With rich harmonies, a driving guitar, and a deceptively cheerful chorus, "Bonnie & Clyde" is one of the songs that helped singer-songwriter Alexandra heal after a difficult period of reevaluation in her life. In this episode, Alexandra sits down with Emmeline to talk about music as medicine, songwriting as catharsis, and the importance of learning to sit in silence with your messy parts until you can navigate and make peace with them.
They also discuss the challenge of being a woman in a male-dominated industry and what people don't talk about when they talk about why everyone loves a bad boy.
