Have You Heard? Ryan Hemsworth ft Mitski, Keaton Henson - Wait
A mis-match of collaborators and genres is moulded into something fantastic.
On paper, this looks like an extremely strange collaboration. Ryan Hemsworth creates lush, hip-hop-leaning beats, Mitski excels at crushing, anthemic indie-rock, while Keaton Henson pens heartbreak over folk rhythms.
‘Wait’ is surprisingly cohesive, though, with Mitski and Henson’s vocals intertwining seamlessly. Henson’s vocals are brought out of the gloom they never emerge from on his solo work, and become almost hopeful once Hemsworth’s beats are laid on top. Mitski brings the song’s heartbreak, leaving that job away from Henson for once, with certain lyrics poking their head above all-encompassing vocal reverb.
‘Wait’ presents a new side to two of the most fascinating modern voices, while showing Hemsworth as capable of moulding any mis-match of collaborators and genres into something fantastic.
