Chicago artist Mielo is breezing into the colder months with a chilling new song “Lonely Game.”After connecting on social media, with Boulder native, singer and songwriter Dafna, the two artists came together to melt Mielo’s original idea, “Tides,” into what is now “Lonely Game.”
I think many of us can relate to the song’s story of having someone special in your life that comes and goes as swiftly as the tide. That absolutely dreadful, but wild feeling of falling in and out of someone, while waiting for them to leave again. This theme is echoed throughout the song as Dafna bellows soul piercing lyrics “I feel you pull me under, I’m hypnotized. Over and Over like the rolling of the tide.” The combination of Mielo’s music and Dafna’s exquisite voice, come together beautifully in this stunning song.
Mielo’s release of “Lonely Game,” continues to steer him into a unique indie pop sound, as he slowly breaks away from his electronic music past. This marks another milestone in an already marvelous year for Mielo, after releasing his debut EP Anywhere But Here, and his summer single “Motion.” His official Crywolf remix, led him to providing direct support for his favorite artist during his “OBLIVIØN Tour.” Mielo’s future is looking anything but lonely as he continues to produce breathtaking music.
