After a soft, artful and neo-classic intro, Mined Music’s electronic indie rock single, Rise Again, featuring Mr. Maph, Amanda Power and Dara Zusko, transgresses into a viscerally compelling ballad where the instrumentals are as complexly layered as the emotions.
With the vocalists finding harmony atop the fervent Slash-style solos towards the outro, Rise Again runs through with an all-consuming intensity that you’d be hardpressed to find elsewhere.
Mined Music, AKA Michael Newell, is a Munch-based producer and DJ who started his career as a hip hop and soul producer before making the switch to electronica in 2012. Rise Again is just one of the recent testaments to his talent in reflecting human emotion in instrumental progressions and compassionate lyricism. Mined Music’s aural maturity, professionalism and nuance are sure to see him go far, wherever he decides to take his sound next.
Rise Again is now available to stream and download on all major platforms via this link.
