Mia LJ is back again with latest single “Breathe” from her upcoming LP This Livin’. Since the release of the multi-instrumentalist’s debut music video and debut EP These Are The Years—which yours truly covered just a few months ago—Mia has garnered praise across social media, streaming sites, and tastemaker sites such as EARMILK, AFROPUNK, and The Hype Magazine. The charismatic NYC-based singer returns with a “sensual new track [that] sucks her listeners in with an ethereal chorus, disarming lyrics and a slowed-down rhythm,” as says The Hype Magazine.
“Breathe” features oscillating synth over a down-tempo beat, with Mia’s restrained vocals singing ‘We’re young and free… don’t stress, just breathe.’ It’s relaxing, thoughtful, contemplative—quite a contrast from the upbeat, youthful, catchy beats of “This Livin’” from a few months back, but the sound is still unmistakably Mia’s. It would seem that since that previous release, when she just started her YouTube channel (linked below), Mia’s received over 70k views, over 60k Spotify streams… and counting. It’s only going to go up from here for the “incredibly talented singer/songwriter,” as she’s dubbed by EARMILK.
Mia LJ’s steadily growing fanbase is sure to enjoy the vulnerable, unforgettable, and sincere sound of “Breathe.” Keep an eye on Mia LJ for her upcoming album This Livin’ and for all of her future releases! More information can be found through the links below!
