Mitski – “I Will”

All of the songs we’ve heard so far from Mitski’s forthcoming full-length have been killer: There’s the wistful dream-pop of “First Love/Late Spring,” the crunchy pummel of “Townie,” and what’s perhaps my favorite song of the year so far, the guttural and vulnerable “I Don’t Smoke.” Our next taste of Bury Me At Makeout Creek is “I Will” and it’s a testament to Mitski’s vast talent as a songwriter that it sounds nothing like the tracks that came before it, yet still retains her individuality and unique perspective. Mitski lays her emotions on the table, satisfied but still wanting — “stay with me, hold my hand/there’s no need to be brave,” she sings as the music bellows behind her. It’s another stunner, and you can listen below.
