Nat Puff, known by the stage name Left At London, has released her first full length album. This comes three years after her self-titled EP and the Transgender Street Legend Volume 1 and Volume 2 EPs. This new full-length album is an exploration of Left at London’s mental health. The music weaves between acoustic indie folk to pop, punk, rock, hip hop and electronica, sometimes all within one song — the switches seem to indicate different moods or mental states.

“There are some days when you are angry in a way that you can’t describe and there are some days when you’re absolutely defeated in a way you can’t describe. Then there’s manic episodes, there’s dissociative episodes, all these sorts of things I feel are unintentionally represented in the genre switches,” Puff says. “Each track represents a different part of my mental state — from suicidal ideations, to hope and healing."
