Mitski is a Brooklyn-based pop musician. Her album Bury Me at Makeout Creek comes out this week on Double Double Whammy, and “Townie” is a song on that record. The lyrics are about harnessing extreme feelings of angst and young love, and expressing freedom/agency as a female-identified person. This music video is my ode to those exact same things—and to that moment when radical thinking starts to buzz through your mind, even if you’re stuck in one place.
