Listen: Misty Miller – “Taxicab”

28 Aug

Misty Miller TaxiCab

It’s only been a couple of months since we last heard from the prodigious talent of Misty Miller and the release of her Next To You EP. Yet here she is, rocking on once more with a new demo, “Taxicab”. She’s been working on a few actually, all of which sound great even channelling Chrissie Hynde on a couple but this is the first one she has chosen to share with us, and it’s a belter.

In fact we’d go so far as to say that, for our money, “Taxicab” is the high point of Misty’s short career thus far. The guitar creeps along, slinking stealthily and keeping low to the ground ready to pounce with deadly precision. The vocals skulk along to begin with as well. But then the two join forces to ambush and devour their prey to a classic bluesy track with added True Blood-style swampiness.

Misty sings with rawness and a power that stretches beyond her previous efforts and the whole thing feels like it should be listened to in some old ramshackle hut, hidden amongst the trees in the Deep South while the patrons smash each other with chairs and have a whale of a time.

It’s fantastic, and it’s just a rough demo. Hopefully a final version won’t have smoothed off those edges as it is the gritty, muddy feel that helps make it sound so good.

Misty Miller’s ‘Next To You’ EP is out now on Relentless Records and can be bought here.
