Mistki Shares Glimmering 'Be The Cowboy' Ballad Two Slow Dancers

Thursday, 09 August 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Mitski has shared a new song.

Two Slow Dancers is a glimmering ballad with a sensational opening line: “Does it smell like a school gymnasium in here?” It builds slowly towards its crescendo, offering a more measured view of Mitski’s writing after the glorious maximalism of Geyser and Nobody.

All three singles will feature on her forthcoming LP, 'Be The Cowboy', which is due out on August 17, with a UK and Ireland tour set to follow in September.

Mitski Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Wed September 19 2018 - MANCHESTER Manchester Gorilla
Thu September 20 2018 - GLASGOW Saint Luke's
Sat September 22 2018 - DUBLIN Tivoli Theatre
Mon September 24 2018 - LEEDS Brudenell Social Club
Tue September 25 2018 - BRISTOL Trinity Arts Centre
Wed September 26 2018 - LONDON O2 Shepherds Bush Empire

There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.
'We Wanted To Reach People on a Personal Level': Pijn Discuss The Genre-Defying Power Of 'Loss'
Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.
Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
Driven By Honesty: Barry Dolan Discusses Oxygen Thief's 'Confusion Species'
Thu 22 Nov 2018
Photo: Chris Taylor When Bristol-based songwriter Barry Dolan released 'Destroy It Yourself', the first Oxygen Thief album, in 2011, he stood out for his entirely acoustic take on melodic hardcore if not the subjects he explored. Dolan conveyed ruminations on love, loss and hypocrisy through cryptic metaphors and sharp turns of phrase, complemented by fitful riffing without a backdrop.
