Dressed as a villain from some Spider Man film with a splash of Texas, Mac has confirmed his freakish ways and once again left us pondering; is he a genius or a child?
Mac Demarco’s lonely new video Nobody highlights things to come on new album Here Comes The Cowboy.
Displaying his maturity as a songwriter, Mac’s reflective acoustic musings on Nobody explores the ‘creature’ on the television. He invites us to empathise with young stars, thrust into the limelight too soon and unable to keep their cool under the lens.
Mac adds a layer to this, playing the ‘creature’ himself, although we would conclude he is a writer settling into his fame rather than an aspiring upstart. Surprisingly deep for someone in a lizard costume.
Funnily, Mitski released an album called Be The Cowboy in 2018 with a lead single titled Nobody. According to Mac this was a completely unknowing coincidence, as he had never heard it when his titles were decided. In a tweet, Mitski maturely responded, “I’m 100% sure Mac and I just went fishing in the same part of the collective unconscious! Anyway, thanks for the laugh Mac! Happy release!”
