Alt rock princess Meg Myers hit her stride again this weekend with the release of her latest single “Tourniquet”. Soft, voluptuous vocals bring an ethereal energy to the track as it floats through your speakers, shaping your memories of the world around you. The song echoes Myers’ quintessential dark lyricism, as she sings of self mutilation, be it emotional or physical, related to love.
While she prepares for her new album (Take Me To The Disco) to release this summer, reigning queen of alternative Meg Myers – or, at least that’s what fans in the midwest would have you believe – is keeping busy. Having just played her first show in a couple of years in Kansas City last night, we can attest to the type of enthusiastic, diverse, dedicated, SOLD OUT fan base she attracts. But there’s a reason for that, evidenced in each carefully-crafted track she releases. Her most recent – the stunning ballad of a title track from her upcoming album – is equal parts elegant and raw, drawing its listeners in to its intricate sound that is just beginning to be remixed into an EDM track.
