Letters To Nobody starts at the end. JJ Shurbet’s debut studio album as Scruffpuppie - and first for Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory Records -  is an album of reclamation, recreation, redefinition, resurgence, rebirth, rehab, total revitalization - but something’s gotta give in order to get to all those re- words. “I don’t have time to just give up,” JJ sings on “the morning where I woke and rode again”, Letters to Nobody’s kaleidoscopic, dreamlike opener. “I went back so many steps.” It’s a song about a breaking point in JJ’s life: the day that, after years of drug abuse, she woke up and realised something in her life needed to change. “I came to my parents, crying, just confused why I couldn’t stop [using], because people had asked me to,” she recalls. Her life, at that point, was caught between so many worlds — bound up by addiction, on the cusp of some kind of underground fame - and one was threatening to consume the other whole. “I was just tired at that point: of destroying myself and my relationships with people I cared about.” 

There is no single song that defines Letters To Nobody — it’s an album that reveals itself to a listener over time, a portrait that appears deeper, more ineffably heart-rending, the more you look at it. It begins, on “the morning where I woke up and rode again”, at the end of a chapter of JJ’s life, and it concerns everything she fought for in the wake of that chapter’s close. In that sense, it’s a testament to the way art can act not just as a product, but as a tool of self-expression and healing — as something that can make any ending seem like a bright new beginning. https://www.scruffpuppie.com/
