A little over year ago, we wrote about Lina Tullgren signing up with Captured Tracks. Well at long last, the Maine singer-songwriter has announced her full-length LP, Won, out on 9/22. Based on the first track, someone lit a fire under Tullgren since signing to Captured Tracks.

Won envelopes listeners with the idea of “home” and “homecoming” – – whether that means a relationship, a physical space, a mentality, or emotion is up to the listener. With 2016’s Wishlist EP – recorded to tape at the home of band mate Ty Ueda – Lina proved an ability to craft simple, introspective and succinct songs, each one a pulsing glow leaving you both hollow and whole, alone but never lonely. It is on Lina’s debut album Won that we reap the full rewards of this newfound confidence in expression and rejection of internal hesitation. It is clear throughout that Lina’s awareness of her internal shift is folded into every corner of these songs. The move towards working with a full band, the deliberate force with which her often quiveringly raw vocals are delivered, and the lyrics themselves, are all constantly functioning to process and take stock of an updated self.
