Born in Japan and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malaysia, China, and Turkey, indie rocker Mitski Miyawaki's nomadic upbringing is reflected in her identity-driven music. Eventually settling in New York City, she studied music at SUNY and made her first two records, Lush and the ambitious, orchestra-driven Retired from Sad, New Career in Business, her junior and senior school projects, respectively. Her third record, 2014's Bury Me at Makeout Point, was mostly recorded in makeshift home studios with a close group of musician friends. In late 2015, Mitski signed to the independent label Dead Oceans and released the hotly anticipated Puberty 2 in June 2016. ~ Simon Spreyer
