Mac DeMarco has just dropped his new album, Here Comes The Cowboy, and alongside the release he’s unveiled an unnerving video for the title track.
The album opens with “Here Comes The Cowboy,” which is a distorted track with a bit of a country twang that definitely serves up an ominous, eerie instrumental line as DeMarco croons overtop. The disturbingly surreal accompanying video is just as bizarre, with distorted creatures standing in the water, swaying, and smiling at the camera.
The album is pretty quintessential Mac DeMarco, with a bit of a cyclical twang added into the mix. Here Comes The Cowboy sees DeMarco’s playful side really shining through, although sometimes the album verges too far on the comical side of things instead of exploring new textures and tones.
Stream Here Comes The Cowboy and watch the video for the title track below.
