Advance singles “Try” and “Wrong For You” marked Molly Burch’s Please Be Mine as a very special sort of throwback, one that refracts familiar retro sounds into pleasing new combinations. She’s a little bit Patsy Cline, a little bit Phil Spector, a little bit William Onyeabor. It all coalesces into a musical entity somewhere between Angel Olsen and early Vampire Weekend.
Today she’s given us a video for the title track. The song is a winsome country tearjerker, and director Jordan Moser matches it with many shots of a mournful Burch carrying a bouquet. Watch below.
Please Be Mine is out now on Captured Tracks. Purchase it here.
