First pressing comes with a bonus disc of acoustic home demos Mia Dyson is on the road. Yeah, we know she's been there since she was 19, but with her third album, Struck Down, she's no longer looking back. It stretches forever in every direction. It's no longer possible to define her by the Australian bush home she left behind, or by how long ago. "The last three years have been revolutionary for me," she says. "I finally feel like this is my place, that music is my thing and I'm in love with being a musician. I feel like I'm past the doubt, the struggle. This is what I do." Struck Down is an album about finding your place in the wide world and simultaneously getting lost in it. It's a mature, contemplative surrender to chaos and beauty, confusion and clarity, sadness, strangeness, and to the rich traditions of roots Americana that first made her dream. "As a listener, I don't need dancing tunes, I don't need entertaining tunes, I like emotive tunes," she says. "It doesn't matter if a whole record is slow for me, as long as it's pulling me in. From the rollicking waltz of Never Felt Young to the climactic lament of My Country, Struck Down is an album that pulls you in and takes you for a ride. And this is just the beginning. "I feel like I've written some of the best songs I've written," Mia says. "I've made a few steps forward and I've taken a couple of steps back. I feel excited that I've progressed as a songwriter, but mainly I've reaffirmed that I can keep going."
