Melbourne solo musician Ali Barter has released her much-anticipated debut album “A Suitable Girl”.
If ever there was a more auspicious time for a body of work to make its mark on the world, A Suitable Girl’s time is now. Taking its name from Vikram Seth’s novel, A Suitable Boy, the album is also about the power of self-acceptance.
With its bold, burning rallying cry and wry lyrics on gender expectations, first single ‘Girlie Bits’ found itself being blasted in thousands of bedrooms across the country, allowing Ali to make her triple j Hottest 100 debut at #58 for 2016.
“A Suitable Girl” is feature album all this week on Triple J, and is out now via Inertia/Ronnie Records.
