Text:Wellington singer/songwriter Charlotte Yates has just released her fourth album, Plainsong, which some critics are calling her most lyrically direct album to date, due to its frank portrayals of girl/girl relationships. For Yates, as with any singer/songwriter, it is merely self-expression rather than a statement which is begging for attention. "I don't know if I sit down to write a lesbian song, but it is who I am, so your stuff comes to the fore. In the same way that you chuck out a shirt, I go out with girls," she says.
