Mikal Cronin - “Weight”

Lots has been said about Mikal Cronin’s latest single “Weight” over the past week or so, and with good reason: it’s one of the best shots of pure power pop I’ve heard in a very long time. You’ve probably read about this song already, so I won’t go into too much detail about why it’s so great. If you haven’t heard it yet, however, do yourself a favour and hit play above for huge guitars, smashing percussion and an insanely catchy melody. It’s currently six degrees and sunny in Halifax - the first time since the season’s changed that it’s truly felt like spring - and right now I wouldn’t want to be listening to anything else but these four minutes of near perfection. 

If you like what you hear, Cronin’s second album MCII will be availible May 7 on Merge Records
