Because I’m Worth It
Rush Hour

★★★★ (out of 5 stars)

It’s advised that you listen to Copeland’s new record alone, preferably in a dark bedroom with nothing floating around your headspace save for the experimental escapades of Inga Copeland, the electronic heiress known for working with Dean Blunt as one half of Hype Williams. Because I’m Worth It opens rapidly by introducing “Faith OG X” and, by the same token, a palpable sense of shallow immediacy. The anxiety-inducing tones cause the heart to beat a little bit faster, and there’s an acute awareness that the music is manipulating physical responses. This notion flows seamlessly into the strongest track on the album, “Advice to Young Girls (feat. Actress).” Accompanied by a dark monologue that encourages teenage girls to sneak out at night, the track emanates the confidence and youthful solidarity that can only be garnered from the release of adolescent inhibitions. As Inga Copeland’s debut solo effort, this synth-pop/drone conception is certainly impressive and is bound to be just a taste of what’s to come from the British artist.
