Mitski Mayawaki – who goes solely by her first name – is a Japanese-American singer and songwriter based in New York City. Mining her status as a perpetual outsider, Mitski has developed into one of the most vital voices in contemporary indie rock on anthems like Your Best American Girl.
Her most recent record, 2016’s Puberty 2, saw her switch between being wry, self-effacing, or scathing words with eases. Her combination of brutal lyrical honesty and wit with the bombast and ’90s indie rock dynamics made for an instant classic that has left fans wanting more.
Mitski has played Dublin once each in the last two years, first at a Workman’s Club in September 2016, followed by a sold-out date at Whelan’s last summer, so it’s little surprise that she is back again in the city to play an even bigger venue.
