“I Go Away”

It’s over, indulgently sober
How did I get here without feeling anything

“Stay true, see it through,” they say
Tick tock, time just slips away

And when the air is clear
The way I go is the way I feel

I’ll go away, I’ll go away, I’ll go my own way

I’ll go away, go away

This is my anthem, I know it like I know everything
I see it everywhere and in everyone
It’s complication, it’s validation

“Stay true, see it through,” they say
Tick tock, time just slips away

And when the air is clear
the way I go is anyway I feel

I’ll go away, I’ll go away, I’ll go my own way

I’ll go away, go away

“Stay true,” is that what they really say
See it through, there is no easy way
It’s right, why do I feel this weight
Tick tock, time just slips away

I’ll go my own way

Go away, go away

MNDR was given Pitchforks’s “Best New Music” stamp in their review of “I Go Away” from her debut EP.

Brooklyn’s Amanda Warner makes dynamic electro-pop under the moniker MNDR, and she’s been building buzz with her project while also working with folks like Mark Ronson. “I Go Away”, a major highlight from the her debut EP, E.P.E., is filled with distinctive synths that melt all over a spare, echoing drum beat like a candy house left out in the hot sun. It’s a serious slow-dance pop confection, but Warner keeps a clear head lyrically. “I Go Away” initially sounds like a post-relationship-fallout slow burner, as she asks, “How did I get here/ Without feeling anything”. Soon, though, you realize that she isn’t calming down– she’s getting pumped up. “This is my anthem/ I know it like I know everything”, Warner softly declares, as if she’s getting ready to step out in front of the curtain, before letting out titular squeaks during a chorus that favorably evokes Santigold as the track builds to its cathartic peak.
