Lisa Prank – “Rodeo”

Robin Edwards is chasing the unattainable: perfect love. The Seattle-based musician might just have to settle for writing a Perfect Love Song, which just so happens to be the name of her forthcoming sophomore album as Lisa Prank.

It’s the follow-up to 2016’s Adult Teen — our Album Of The Week back when it came out — and it doubles down on Edwards’ penchant for pop-punk hooks and puckered songwriting. Perfect Love Song was produced by Rose Melberg of Tiger Trap and the Softies, and Lisa Prank is continuing on in the vein of those twee legends.

The album’s lead single, “Rodeo,” is chiming and assured, and Lisa Prank’s one-woman show is solidified into a full band that helps hammer home the song’s catchy resignation. Edwards is singing about not falling for the same love mishaps twice, learning from past mistakes and trying to not make them again. “By now I know, this isn’t my first rodeo/ By now I know, nobody wants to take it slow,” she sings. “And you don’t wanna be in love/ Means you don’t wanna be in love with me.”
