Mitski’s Video for “Townie” + Album Re-release
Mitski, whom we got to see live a bit ago at The Sinclair, brings us an awesome animated music video for her song “Townie,” off 2014’s bury me at makeout creek.
The track’s video showcases salmon and blush saturated line art from illustrator Faye Orlove (she was based in Boston for six years), queued up to select pieces of lyric. It’s like primo Rookie Mag aesthetic. Building up in intensity like the song, the video gets more dissonant and chaotic as it goes and is a lot of fun to watch. It’s a bit NSFW if boobs and tampon diagrams are offensive for whatever reason to your place of employment.
bury me at makeout creek is out now, but sees a re-release on April 7.
