Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you to Amber for bringing this awesome lady to my attention. During one of our many planning meetings/music-video-viewing sessions, Amber played the video for “Happy” (the opening track of her fourth studio album Puberty 2) and my immediate reaction was: WHO IS THIS PERSON!? HOW DID I NOT KNOW I EXISTED ON THE SAME PLANET WITH THIS PERSON!? It was of course, Mitski Miyawaki, known mononymously as Mitski, and I clearly didn’t know about her through some clerical error my music-listening brain made…that is really the only explanation. Her music is an emotional rollercoaster and a perfect start to a week that, from its onset, is promising to be the same (for me personally, but maybe for some of you, too?).
Also, let’s talk about the many ways a music video can be perfect!
Anyway, have a great week!
