Avant-garde pop singer Empara Mi shares new single ‘Crying’

Highly acclaimed avant-garde pop singer Empara Mi has released her new song ‘Crying’, along with a beautiful video inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. It premiered with Wonderland, who said of the singer: “Otherworldly… sometimes ghostly, sometimes a hurtling force of nature – but always a striking sonic and visual blast.”

‘Crying’ leads with stark piano chords before expanding with warped vocal samples which break into the lush vocals of Empara Mi, melding styles from influences across pop, R&B and hip hop. It’s produced by Lemonthebeat.

Speaking to Wonderland about ‘Crying’ Empara Mi said, “This song was inspired by some of the messages I receive from young girls and boys who are struggling with their sense of identity and find themselves trying to get out of a dark place. I want the song to be hopeful and encouraging but also an ode to their courage.”

She continued about the video to say, “The director Matt Hutchings and I wanted to pay homage to one of my favourite movie moments, the ‘dying scene’ in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. We wanted it to feel cinematic and have the romanticism of the scene but deliver a different message. Instead of taking her life, she alone, saves it instead.”

Since emerging in 2016 with her critically acclaimed debut single ‘Wanderlust’, Empara Mi has since gone on to clock up almost 3 million streams on Spotify alone, while she has also collaborated with Kojey Radical on her track ‘Spoon’.

With an uncompromising vision for her magnificent post pop, Empara Mi has returned and 2019 heralds the unfolding of her dramatic, ambitious and emotional musical direction. Stay tuned for more details soon!
