We all expect different things from the artists that we love. They should be strong, role models. At the same time, we expect a certain vulnerability and sensitivity and the talent to transmit what we all think and feel. Mitski manages this balancing act. But at the same time she can break with these claims and develop a form of aloofness from strength and weakness that further winds this contradiction into a spiral turn. This is the great art of Mitski Miyawaki, who also makes her latest album Be The Cowboy a special sound experience.
