Meg Myers has been featured in Billboard, Teen Vogue, XO Magazine, Untitled, & more
“…Governor's Ball gave female songwriters more
richly deserved slots…early arrivals heard Meg Myers
hurling imprecations at the destructive power of love
and desire: With seething hard-rock riffs like early P.J.
Harvey, and a voice that built from laments to
screams, she was cathartic even under noonday
sunshine.
“It’s not the typical artist development story, but
then agan, Myers isn’t your typical musician. On her
2012 debut EP, Daughter in the Choir, Myers
delivered a strikingly visceral feeling and the sort of
deeply relatable angst artists like Fiona Apple came
up on. The result is at times guttural and primitive in
its execution.”
“Los Angeles-via-Tennessee singer/songwriter Meg
Myers juggles the pretty and the ugly perfectly, as
you can tell by listening to her new single, “Desire.” It
opens with a menacing drift then bursts with melodic
fireworks. The piano soars, yet the bass-lines creep…
Add in lines about skinning, killing, and being thrown
to hounds, sung in Myers’ fierce-then-vulnerable
voice, and you have something that is as sweet as it is
unsettling.”
“Be careful with the desire Meg Myers craves in her
new single. She's sweet looking (sort of) but she's a
predatory, black widow of a lay. Seriously bro...don't
say we didn't warn you.”
“Much like the intense visual aesthetic of the video
(she drags a fiery dead tree!), Meg’s powerful vocals
along with her potent soul piercing lyrics highlights
her vulnerability and emotional fearlessness.”
“The lovelorn facets of Myers' dark, intimate music
might evoke Sinéad O'Connor or Fiona Apple, but
there are also moments of tumult and menace that
trace back to her teenage fascination with grunge
bands such as Nirvana and Alice in Chains.”
“With a dynamic sound that reminds us of the love
child of Sinead O’Connor and Linkin Park… Meg Myers
won’t stop until she gets her way… or a hit album,
whichever comes first.”
“Not only does she create indie tunes—much in the
same vain as Alanis Morrisette, might we add—but
she also has an undeniable beauty that softens her
angsty demeanor. Although her new EP Daughter in
the Choir released quietly, the message is loud and
clear: there is ample room for a strong feminine
perspective in the moody indie space. She isn't the
first to purvey a the particular brand of indie, and
certainly won't be the last. But one thing's for sure:
she looks good doing it.”
“Whatever the intention, the video is simply stunning
and Meg's voice embodies so many feelings that it's
clear there's a lot going on behind this record.”
“Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Closer’ finally has an answer song.
With ‘Desire,’ Meg Myers has crafted a track that
challenges the dark sexuality of the 1994 classic. ‘I
gotta hurt you,’ the Los Angeles-based artist sings,
and that’s just one of the lighter lyrics. Later, over the
palm-muted tension of electric-guitar chords, she
warms up to: ‘I want to f*** you/ I want to feel you in
my bones.’ You hear that rattling? That’s Trent
Reznor shaking in his steel-toe boots.”
“’Desire,’ likely the most aggressive and sinister song in
the Los Angeles artist’s repertoire. “I want to fuck you,
I want to feel you in my bones,” she rages on bluntly in
the clattering, almost grunge-y pop-rock number. Not
holding back for one second, she hurls a ravenous
chorus, yelping, “How do you want me? How do you
want me?” showcasing Myers in all her raw, bloodthirsty glory.
“When Meg Myers is singing onstage and her eyes
roll back in her head, when she jerks spastically, it’s
her own version of Method acting, an attempt to
channel the “dark, sexual” emotions that come from
deep within.”
