Mylar paints sonic enjoyment with ‘Scribbled Sunset’ ahead of EP release
London art-pop maestros, Mylar, have released their latest single, ‘Scribbled Sunset,’ a tantalizing glimpse into their upcoming EP, Lost In The Shuffle, due to drop on April 16, 2024.
‘Scribbled Sunset’ showcases Mylar’s evolution into a heavier, rawer, and groovier sound. The track’s tight and intimate synth-funk grooves coupled with Tom Short’s soulful vocals, create a beguiling blend of electronica, R&B, and soft pop. The chorus, with its cutting yet succinct lyrics, captures the essence of questioning a fading relationship.
Short describes the inspiration behind the song, saying:
“This song came together from us trying to use a sound which is essentially the slap bass sound from the Seinfeld intro music. It’s quite upfront and direct and it looks at that moment in a relationship where you’re questioning whether someone is that interested anymore. And that image of a ‘scribbled sunset’ is talking about the need many of us have to paint over things even when they’re clearly not working.”
Lost In The Shuffle signifies a new era for Mylar, as they venture into uncharted territory without the safety net of a label. The EP reflects the trio’s journey through personal and professional upheavals, promising a more soulful and profound musical offering. Mylar retains its love for 80s pop textures but sheds the glossy pop hues, emerging as a groovier and more emotionally charged musical entity. Lead vocalist Tom Short confesses, “Everything’s a bit more soulful because there’s more at stake.”
“When you’re questioning whether you’re going to carry on with the project it makes you really want to do your best. Maybe that makes everything a bit more soulful because there’s more at stake.”
‘Scribbled Sunset’ is out now. Their upcoming EP, Lost In The Shuffle, is due to drop on April 16, 2024.
