Brace yourselves, folks. Mr. Little Jeans is poised to emerge as the next buzz band in the indie world, and with good reason — her latest track “Runaway” is a wonderfully upbeat, synth-pop anthem. Basically, I’d argue that she’s Grimes, but actually good.
She first caught my attention with her cover of The Arcade Fire’s “Suburbs,” appropriately described at the time as “entrancing.” Indeed, with “Runaway” she has managed to cast a similar spell on my mind.
The song will be released on her upcoming album, titled Mr. Little Jeans (original, no?).
