Alt-RnB artist Mulay has made a serious mark on the scene in 2020 with her incredible brand of electronica-tinged RnB, with a truly unique style. The new single ‘Medusa’ is a prime example of this, accompanied by a stunning FKA Twigs-esque visual, it’s an epic way to sign off the year. Visually and sonically, we’re instantly put in mind of BANKS’ best work.
The upcoming EP, ANTRACYTE (Forthcoming on Groenland Records) is mastered by Matt Colton (Muse, James Blake, George Michael, Hot Chip, Flume) muses on the darker underbelly of modern society. It’s an approach that’s earned her plaudits around the world and support across Spotify’s editorial system. Speaking on the new single ‘Medusa’, Mulay states:
“When I wrote MEDUSA I was in a very dark place. I betrayed and hurt someone I loved and was confronted with the consequences of my actions. I experienced rejection, hate, condemnation and was haunted by guilt, self-hate and self-doubt. Longing to numb the pain I went down a path of self-destruction until I did not feel anything anymore. I gave up on myself, while at the same time, deep within, there seemed to be a silent sparkle of hope that my reckless behavior would evoke someone’s attention, provoke his silence to be broken. A desperate cry for a sign that someone still cared. A dangerous bet, I went all in for.
“I carry this song with me for a long time now and it went through several stages of my artistic development until I finally felt like it reached its rightful form and context with the version you hear today. It’s like I’m finally giving birth to a child that I’ve carried around for almost 7 years. But I’m glad that I allowed myself and the song to go through this long process of growth and healing, as it led me to where and who I am today.”
