Meg Myers: ex-Jehovah’s Witness, now both witness and preacher to pop-punk and possibly redefining riot grrrl for us today. Myers is all this and the artist we’re currently transfixed by. You can now hear and download a telling sample of her upcoming EP, Make A Shadow, in the form of the song “Go.”
It’s no lie electro-pop is currently having its moment, and that’s where Myers starts off before making her way backwards. She floats the idea that she’s the only non-DJ musician in recent memory able to encompass pop and electronic and grunge and punk so seamlessly. Fitting scenarios for blasting this song: in your car, at the gym, running to save your car from getting towed, running from the cops.
