Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Mariah Counts has brought her hauntingly connectable presence to the airwaves once more with her latest single, Nothing. The softly downtempo contemporary electropop ballad is dark in an unexpectedly tender way that will leave you utterly mesmerised from start to finish.
With ethereal effects laced around the acoustic melodies and trip-hop beats, the progressive instrumentals take you for an evocatively tumultuous ride while Mariah Counts’ true-to-voice vocals expressing relatable hollowness that love can cause to linger.
It is easy to see how so many have been left enraptured by the luminary artist who has exactly what it takes to define the future of pop. Counts truly proved how out of trend plastic pop facades are with Nothing. With a 250k-strong fan base, it is only a matter of time before she sheds her up and coming status.
Nothing is now available to stream on Spotify.
