In a career spanning more than ten years and six albums, Mitski has gone from being the new vanguard of indie rock to a true pop icon and one of the best American songwriters of her generation. Although little known to the general public, Mitski tours all over the world and has a large community of fans who see her as a healer who can identify with their doubts and anxieties. Four years after Be The Cowboy (best album of the year according to Pitchfork and New York Time Magazine), Mitski is back this year with the album Laurel Hell. The saturated guitars, which were her trademark in the early days, are abandoned in favour of eighties synths and dance-worthy beats. On record or on stage, Mitski has an amazing talent to make the crowds dance by telling us about tragic quests for identity, happiness and love.
