SONG PICK: Mïrändä – Stay (Video)

“Stay”, the new single by NYC-based singer/songwriter and producer Mïrändä, takes the listener by storm. Starting out as a pleasing pop ballad, the track shows its true colors, when a good 30 seconds in, it explodes in an exquisite melange of sounds and emotions. Mïrändä is a convincingly powerful singer and fully in charge of her vocals, making them soar to the highest regions and drop down again to velvety warm, lush and earthy grounds. While the lyrics describe some darker context, the overall sound and production of this orchestral pop-rock anthem are playful and fun, supported by the appealing and at times unusual instrumentation. Asked about “Stay”, Mïrändä offers:

“Stay is a theatrical, classic rock, symphonic pop anthem about the desire for human connection, and about a crippling fear of being alone. It’s about navigating hookup culture today, attempting to conform to its expectations. And it is about the blurred lines between sex and love. While the lyrics express a sense of desperation, the melody and instrumentation are hopeful.”

She further explains about her inspiration:

“I was listening to a lot of Queen when I wrote and arranged this piece, which I think is evident in the harmonies. This song has more classical influence, mainly baroque, than anything else I’ve written. I have always loved harpsichord and I was so thrilled when I was able to add it to the song.”

And an artist, so full in control of her work as Mïrändä, the cover was no coincidence either:

“For the cover art I chose The Hermit to represent this song because upright it represents soul-searching, introspection, and inner guidance, while reversed it represents isolation, loneliness and withdrawal.”

Yes, to soul-searching and introspection, and YES to also performing this gorgeous music live! New York knows no shortage in talented singer/songwriters but those who are also skilled in producing their material themselves are far less, especially the ones who do it so remarkably beautiful!
