Here’s the recently released single from Demi Mitchell, the first since she released her fine album The Overflow last year. This track hangs wonderfully in the air, built on tension and a noir aesthetic courtesy of ringing guitar chords and a shroud of reverb. It’s a kind of smokey gothic Americana, one of those songs where the sound and sonic qualities are perfectly matched to Mitchell’s lyrics and voice.
‘Rapid’ is a sultry lament about the push and pull of toxic love. At the crux, it’s about having no regrets about our mistakes as even the shit times can help shape our lives in positive ways. The instrumentation mirrors the sentiment behind the song with a hypnotic rhythm that lures you in before coming to an abrupt halt.
