Power's self-titled debut, released on Tompkins Square in 2016, received wide praise from UNCUT (9 / 10, »Masterpiece«), MOJO (4 stars), The Guardian (4 stars), Irish Times (4 stars).
»The Two Worlds« was produced by Peter Broderick and recorded at Analogue Catalogue in County Down, Ireland. Q Magazine listed the album as a »Top Tip« for 2018, stating »(The Two Worlds) is full of droning ballads laced with defiance.« The sadly topical first single, »Don't Shut Me Up (Politely)«, seems to express what's on the minds of many women right now. Tompkins Square's Josh Rosenthal noted on social media, »I don't usually have the opportunity to say something political about the music I put out, but in the case of Brigid Mae Power's new single, I think this song may resonate with any woman who's been gaslit, mansplained to, paid less, bullied, sexually harassed by a C-List celebrity or famous movie producer, had her birth control systematically taken away, or told she had to go to another country or across state lines to get an abortion.«
In her own words about the album: »I had been thinking about my Grandmother a lot, so there are a couple of songs about her. I'd been thinking about lost friendships. I'd been thinking about how to balance being settled and also being up in the clouds. I'd been thinking a lot about cutting out the crap and letting go of things that don't serve you, so I feel like these songs are pretty direct. I wanted them to sound direct too and the studio Analogue Catalogue was the perfect place and had a great sound and live room. (...) ›I'm Grateful‹ was written in Oregon and for me I can tell that it wasn't written in Ireland. The rest of the album feels quite like what my environment looks like here at the moment out of my window.« (Brigid Mae Power)
