Mitski is a special talent.
New album 'Puberty 2' is out on June 17th, and - from what we've heard so far - it marks the blossoming of a wonderful artist.
New cut 'Happy' is online now, and it muses on the "exhausting cycle" life offers - for every up, must come a crushing low.
Mitski explains: "Happiness fucks you. Once it's in your hands you try to hold onto it, but the nature of happiness is that it passes through and eventually leaves, and something else - sadness, anger, a low after the high - has to follow. This song is about this exhaustive and exhausting cycle, and how sometimes one would rather not have any of it at all than be constantly thrown about by the waves of these fleeting states."
