He lives in New York, is a best-selling author and has gotten approval from none other than Johnny Depp – it would seem that Mishka Shubaly has a fair few impressive points about himself. I Can’t Remember When You Were Mine is the first single off forthcoming album Coward’s Path, due out on April 20th, with Mishka himself describing it as a “collection of depressing, alcoholic, nihilistic songs” – in contrast, Johnny Depp’s described the musician as “forever a favourite – sublime!” He’s had a fair wad of life experience too, touring non stop for a year and living out of a Toyota campervan at one point, as well as plays shows with the likes of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Strokes.
Mishka’s captivating vocals take the focus of the track, taking its lead as the music dips into the edge of psychedelia, a dark side to the singer/songwriter’s music being more than hinted at. Dipped in melancholy, this lethargic and understated track is one also deeply impassioned and nostalgic. The control in the track is almost of an atmospheric degree, and there’s something incredibly enthralling about the track. Check it out for yourself below:
