Stream: M. Ward – “Primitive Girl”

The straightforward and piano-driven “Primitive Girl” off M. Ward’s upcoming A Wasteland Companion is our second taste of the album, after “The First Time I Ran Away” was made available earlier this month. “Primitive Girl” features a definitively looser Ward, whose pop instincts are on full display here after the barren beauty of “The First Time I Ran Away”. The new track is fun, simple, and a great way to look forward to A Wasteland Companion, out April 10th on Merge Records.

  1. Sounds like classic Ward elements. Sleepy and dreamy. I’m not sure that the first time I ran away is going to translate to most people because there isn’t much holding the song together. M. Ward is a great lyricist and melody maker, I hope I hear more of that on A Wasteland Companion as opposed to this more ethereal sound.
