“Myela” is the second single leading up to electronic infused musical folk artist Nick Mulvey’s second album.
The track is based on the refugee crisis, and follows a sense of want and responsibility to help those in need in such a horrible situation, the themes of the song are realised through eerie electronic riffs and an upbeat groove in a positivity drenched atmosphere with insightful and incisive song writing and lyrics. The song has two very distinct vibes to it, from the rhythmic groove of the sorrowful opening to the upbeat, hopeful second half hammering in the community theme of the song.
The song was co-written by a close friend of Nick’s and new member of their band Federico Bruno who brought the track to life alongside producer Dan Carey in his south London based studio.
“Having been deeply touched by the crisis I wanted to write about it, and did so in partnership with Federico. We felt unworthy to write poetry about this subject. Exploring first-hand accounts of refugee journeys, we wanted to give them voice. To share with people who listen to my music, to make them aware the situation continues” – Nick Mulvey talking about Myela.
Along with the release of the track Mulvey is also supporting Help Refugees UK and will perform at the Give a Home for Human Rights Campaign on 20th September in association with Amnesty.
The new album “Wake up Now” will be released on the 8th September through Fiction Records, pre order it here – https://nickmulveyuk.lnk.to/WUNPPR/umgtest9
