In the world of electro-pop, there are some artists who capture your attention as soon as you hear their music.When we first stumbled upon the synth pop of a Texas band called BLSHS, it was obvious that their lead singer had some serious vocal chops. So when Michelle Miears went out on her own with an E.P., we were happy to see that her vocals had a new place to thrive. Now just as MIEARS, she’s announced a new full length titled Hanging On set for release in late February. With the lead single “Let Me Down,” fans of the artist should quickly note the change in direction of her most realized sound to date.
From the jump, the producer pulls you in with a haunting tone and a catchy beat. The way the vocals stand at the front of the track make them more prevalent, while layered vocals lay just underneath the synths. It’s catchy and hard to shake as it plays out, showcasing how far the producer has come since her beginnings. The production from the artist is on another level while the mastering from Heba Kadry shines and offers a higher level of sheen to the track. It’s so well done that you may find yourself ready to get down as soon as the beat drops.
“Let Me Down” is available to stream above or on Soundcloud. The song should hit all digital streaming sites in a couple of weeks. Hanging On is available to preorder on deluxe vinyl directly from the MIEARS Bandcamp page. MIEARS is set to tour later this year. For now she will appear in person at Axelrad in Houston, TX on February 28.
