Meg Myers - The Morning After

Here’s the flip side of Meg Myers. Whereas the likes of Monster and Go displayed an unsettling intensity that was unusually raw in this age of musical play-safe, now we’re at The Morning After

“Baby, I want to fuck you, I want to feel you in my bones,” Meg belted out lustily on Desire, but now there’s the reflective regret. Backed by a gentle acoustic waltz she sings “I can't tell anyone the morning after you.” It’s still raw lyrically, but the music is quietly understated and would surely be the perfect set closer to her live show after some of the sonic aggression that has gone before. Now we just have to hope that Meg makes it onto a stage in the UK at some point this year.

The Morning After will be featured on Meg’s forthcoming EP Make A Shadow.
