You know when you go to an art museum and see the multimedia art and you wanna get real close and touch it and pick at all the layers of paint and paper and feathers and whatever to figure out what’s the secret that makes this cool art rather than a bunch of weird shit stuck to a giant piece of canvas? Trying to describe Mulán’s first single / total fucking banger, Night, is kind of like that. The screeches and yells and distortion and electric guitar and synths all melted and mashed together should be weird and unsettling (which they kind of are) but somehow the sum total is bizarre and very, very catchy.
The tune was recently noticed by Annie Mac, who included it in her ‘New Names’ feature.
