After graduating from the school in which she released her first albums all by herself, an exhausting stage of life presented into Mitski leading to the creation of Bury Me At Makeout Creek – Totally changing up her sound to a louder Indie Rock theme along the topics of becoming an adult and it’s aspects, Mitski opens up honestly about her own experience like an open book.

The singing on display is incredible and solidifies Mitski’s talent only a few years into her career.
