Meg Myers seethed, “Baby, I want to fuck you / I want to feel you in my bones,” on “Desire,” a (clearly) no-nonsense single from her upcoming Make a Shadow EP. Now, the Nashville-bred, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter has followed that conquest with “The Morning After,” another track from her new short-player, out February 11 via Atlantic Records.
As its title suggests, “The Morning After” deals with next-day regret and, fittingly, the grit and aggression that fueled “Desire” has subsided, allowing for a quiet, twinkling ballad. “I can’t feel anything the morning after you,” Myers sings over acoustic guitar. “And I can’t tell anyone the morning after you.”
