MishCatt – “Midnight Sun” single
“‘Midnight Sun’ looks at a more hopeful high of being close to someone, but still being far away from that natural essence. It has an almost sad positivity to it, that you’re close to this person, but still not as close as you want to be. The story I imagined is the long journey it’s been to fully honor myself, my visions, not being afraid to stand up for what I believe in. All of the self-doubt and self-conscious feelings you can have, I realized it’s like any working relationship. There’s trust, paranoia, ecstasy… a wide range of emotions. Music so often focuses on the love stories we have with others, but I thought why not make a love story about you with yourself, your truest self.” –MishCatt
‘Midnight Sun’ contains a relatable storyline, vocoder vocals, and warm melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses synth-pop instrumentation flavored with psychedelic and electric elements. The song was written in collaboration with executive producer Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow, Britney Spears, Madonna). Also, with music producer Patrik Berge and up-and-coming producer Fabian Berglund.
