Mitski - Be the Cowboy (LP)

Be the Cowboy
Due on 17/08/2018
Hailed as the new vanguard of indie rock following the breakout success of 2016'€™s Puberty 2, Mitski returns with Be the Cowboy.

"€œFor this new record, I experimented in narrative and fiction," comments Mitski. Though she hesitates to go so far as to say she created full-on characters, she reveals she had in mind "a very controlled icy repressed woman who is starting to unravel. Because women have so little power and showing emotion is seen as weakness, this '€˜character'€™ clings to any amount of control she can get. Still, there is something very primordial in her that is trying to find a way to get out."€

In Be the Cowboy, Mitski delves into the loneliness of being a symbol and the loneliness of being someone, how it can feel so much like being no one.
