Mitski, Your Best American Girl from the forthcoming record, 'Puberty 2' out June 17 on Dead Oceans.
Director: Zia Anger
Mitski’s powerful “Your Best American Girl” is undoubtedly one of the best songs of the year so far, and now it has an equally great music video to go along with it. The clip, which was directed by Zia Anger (who has also done videos for Angel Olsen and Jenny Hval), accentuates the song’s theme by playing into societal expectations of beauty and relationship dynamics. Mitski sees a (really, really hot) boy from across the room and waves, but is heartbroken when she sees him choose someone more “traditional.” Thankfully, Mitski turns to herself and her guitar to get over the loss, and leaves better off without him. -- Stereogum
