I have a confession: I’ve deliberately neglected to talk about Mitski on the site. I went from a casual Bandcamp listener to a selfish fan hoping for a rather gradual ascent to fame so I can catch her live somewhere small first. I say gradual because she’s already blowing up right before our very eyes and soon she’ll be selling out shows left and right. It’s inevitable for someone with her talent and earnestness. Apart from her sharp songwriting, she has such a stunning voice.
This time around, she’s made it harder for me to keep quiet with this ridiculous cover of boy band One Direction’s “Fireproof”. Yes, that’s right. Listen for yourself. Mitski, don’t ever change.
