Written alongside and as a follow-up to "Disambiguation", Cruel Diagonals’ "Pulse of Indignation" is a mighty next leap in Megan Mitchell’s musical trajectory. Whereas, for Mitchell, "Disambiguation" was about sense-making and uncovering some of the traumas surrounding Mitchell’s early musical career as an adolescent and young adult, "Pulse of Indignation" is about recognizing the exploitation, grooming, and pain that she was subjected to as a young woman under the watchful eye of men with power in the music industry. It's about harnessing the righteous anger, repulsion, and indeed, indignation, at the proliferation of these experiences for young women and non-men. If "Disambiguation" was about mourning the loss of Mitchell’s self-volition through uncovering layers of previously obscured suffering, "Pulse of Indignation" is about moving through to the next stage and owning the narrative she projects into the world.
