Miraldi’s new track “Tequila Meets Gin” opens gracefully with a soft, anticipatory drum beat over a reverb-drenched guitar riff. It’s the latest song in which the Manhattan-based singer/songwriter has been expanding his sounds from his usual folk tone, and he is confidently showcasing that he is more than just that. Even with this expansion, he still translates folk staples into his writing––for example, “Tequila Meets Gin” offers warm illustrative story-telling that place the listener directly in the scene. The descriptors in his lyrics, especially the line “we were sharing a taxi he left you in Japan / but you stole his t-shirt of his favorite band, found another plan,” evoke distinct imagery that is undoubtedly one of Miraldi’s greatest strengths as a musician.
