For Melbourne indie artist Alex Lahey, life these days is all about risk. That head-first mindset is apparent from the title of The Answer Is Always Yes, her third studio album. The Answer Is Always Yes sees Lahey approaching her music in a new way, inviting other writers and producers into her early creative process. It also included saying yes to a new direction, pivoting from her focus on relationships to analysing her “otherness” in different ways, navigating life through surrealism and humour. 

The whole album is chock full of songs that scream road trips and beach days, pulling from a grungier vision of Sheryl Crow and latter-day Liz Phair’s fun-loving pop rock, shot through with a synthesised yet vulnerable twinge that was already apparent on Lahey’s first two albums. 

The Answer is Always Yes is a proud document of Lahey’s current place in life and in the world, as an artist who is okay with taking risks but still feeling herself out. “I feel like if you’re saying yes and you’re exploring, you’re always moving,” Lahey said ahead of the album’s release. “That’s the part of life that I’m in right now. I just don’t wanna stop.”
