Not only does Neko Case have one of the most powerful voices in all of alt-americana land , she‘s also one of the coolest women in the world. On her new single, however, she just as easily takes on the role as a man.
“Man” is a power pop/americana cyclone on which Neko Case plays with reversed gender roles, adding her always chilling humor and well-placed sarcasm. “You did not know what a man was until I showed you,” she sings while She & Him’s Mark Ward shows his indie muscles during some sturdy guitar solos. If anyone has to define what it means to be a man, it might as well be Neko.
The song will be featured on her new album, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You which will hopefully be released very soon. Last week this beautiful album trailer appeared, making the waiting even more painful.
