We’ve been enjoying this absolutely gorgeous song since it surfaced last Friday. Brooklyn singer songwriter Mitski and the Bay’s experimental rock/noise pop expert Xiu Xiu have teamed up on a splendorous synthwavy beauty named Between The Breaths, their contribution to How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ soundtrack. I already couldn’t wait to see the movie, which stars Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, and many other acclaimed actors. It pairs 70s punk with quirky Neil Gaiman sci-fi, which evokes a resounding yes from me. Between The Breaths’ scope feels more than cosmic, and it’s deeply entrenched in sweet nostalgia, too. I can’t get enough of Mitski’s aptly breathy voice on the glistering gem. This is definitely a favorite of the moment.
