Back in March 2016 something magical happened in the Texas desert during the annual Marfa Myths festival, Mexican Summer and Ballroom. Ariel Rosenberg (aka Ariel Pink) and Natalie Mering (aka Weyes Blood) teamed up for a week long musical residency that’s resulted in an EP’s worth of songs titled Myths 002.
The West Coast duo aren’t exactly strangers, more like long time friends with Mering featuring on Pink’s 2013 album <em>Mature Themes</em> and Pink producing Drugdealer‘s recent track ‘Suddenly’ featuring Mering.
Myths 002 finds both artists bringing their signature sounds to the table – Pink’s odd ball charms and Mering’s ethereal tonnes both shine bright and intertwine on the EP. First taste of the release comes in the form of ‘Tears On Fire’, check the full EP track listing and hear the song below…
