You know that awful music criticism trope that is like “this artist sounds like this person and this person”? Brooklyn-based Mitski resembles no one but herself. If one had to attach her to a genre, they might say her sound alternates between nostalgia-fueled pop-punk and electric folk. “Townie” is the second single from Mitski’s Double Double Whammy debut, Bury Me At Makeout Creek. The song exemplifies her dualities, balancing a sense of wild abandon and dark romanticism.
Bury Me At Makeout Creek is out November 11 on Double Double Whammy. Preorder the record here.
