Future-pop riser Miso Extra has shared new single ‘2nd Floor’.
The long-time Clash favourite is making waves, having spent time finessing the finer details of her craft. Set to play a headline show at London’s Lower Third early next year, Miso Extra has now burst forwards with a dose of new material.
Or, to be exact, two new doses.
‘2nd Floor’ is out now, a delicious avant-pop jewel that gleams with energy. The production is scintillating, while the central vocal is layered in drama and poise. In her words, Miso Extra says the song…
“Explores the moment you realise you’re in a toxic relationship and the anguish from realising your own naivety. There’s hope though in the line in Japanese that states ‘I don’t need a Prince’ to allude to the idea that I can be my own knight in shining armour to have my happily ever after and not rely on another to be my source of joy.”
Claryn Chong crafts the full video for ‘2nd Floor’, produced by Beatnik Creative. Miso takes the starring role, adding: “as it was a break up song about gaining clarity the first thought I had was ‘what’s the first thing that all people do when they go through a shift in life’. Answer: Cut their hair! So we felt why not have a video where I cut my hair!”
Alongside this, Miso Extra has also shared a deft cover of Little Dragon’s ‘Constant Surprises’. Out now, it highlights a key influence on her art, and displays her gifts as an interpreter. Miso adds…
“I adore the band Little Dragon and the lyrics in this song particularly resonate with me as I am often prone to daydreaming. To me this song serves as a beautiful reminder to count my blessings.”
