Mac DeMarco accused of copying indie darling Mitski

After releasing his new single, "Nobody", and announcing his upcoming album, Here Comes the Cowboy, Mac DeMarco has come under fire for allegedly copying fellow indie musician, Mitski, who had also released a single with the same name and an album titled Be the Cowboy last year.



According to a banned source, DeMarco has never even listened to Be the Cowboy and had only learned about these similarities after deciding the titles of his latest album and single. During a press release, DeMarco stated, "Cowboy is a term of endearment to me, I use it often when referring to people in my life. Where I grew up, there are many people that sincerely wear cowboy hats and do cowboy activities. These aren’t the people I’m referring to". Mitski light-heartedly responded to accusations of copying through her social media, saying, "haha! I'm 100% sure mac & I just went fishing in the same part of the collective unconscious!"

ONTD, do you prefer Mitski or indie Post Malone?
