the sunset thunderstorm rolling in is a striking accompaniment to the latest mitski single. “happy” is culled from her forthcoming album puberty 2, out june 17th via dead oceans; the track’s titular personified emotion runs rampant throughout its various phases, twisting through a sparse, eerie opening that blooms into a cacophonous, sax-driven wall of sound.  though its exterior is at times ferocious, the inner workings of “happy” unfold to reveal mitski’s true mastery of emotive songwriting, along with her uncanny ability to pit intimate vulnerability against those thick, abrasive textures.  take a listen below.
