South-Florida-born independent alt-pop songstress myah is proving herself as one to watch with the release of her brand new single i’ll be your light.

With influences including The National, Talking Heads, Modest Mouse, and Twenty One Pilots, myah has melded a somewhat nostalgic, feminine yet edgy sound that really holds its own – a rich blend that feels familiar and refreshing at the same time.

i’ll be your light serves as a poignant yet scintillating contemplation of intense mid-to-post-break up angst, as the narrator reflects on memories of what once was, left bereft between the bare walls of what was once a dwelling for two.

The song’s deeply personal yet engaging lyrics detail the disbelief and bewilderment one can experience in going through a breakup. myah’s effortlessly dark vocals drip with brooding emotion amidst a complex arrangement that pulsates and careens back and forth, through all the memories, disillusionments, hopes and “what ifs”.

“Hate that the movers came

Hate that they painted the place

Hate that they emptied all our shared things

I mostly hate this lonely space cause…I remember

Do you remember?”

i’ll be your light production features a multilayered soundscape of synths and percussion that buzz and sizzle amidst palpitating percussion. The arrangement comes in waves and troughs, electrifying and cutting in equal measure.

The track recedes at the bridge from 2.29 as she bids her lover one last time “would you stand in the breach one last time?” This moment of vulnerability and raw emotion exemplifies myah’s ability to connect with her listeners on a profound level.

This budding artist’s fresh sound and ability to articulate complex emotions so precisely and authentically indicate a standout talent that will surely set myah apart in the alt-pop scene and solidify her place as a formidable talent in the genre.

myah’s debut album is due in August 2024. She will be performing at the legendary Whiskey A Go Go on May 30th. Tickets here.
