MIIA Shares Heartfelt New Single ‘OXIDE’

Norwegian singer and songwriter MIIA has just shared her brand new single OXIDE, a powerful piano-based ballad taken from her upcoming EP. 
I am absolutely in love with MIIA's heartbreaking vocals which are packed with so much raw emotion that instantly makes you feel each and every single word she is singing. OXIDE is a modern ballad about being in a peaceful point in one's healing process, when you allow yourself to let go of the pain and truly start to heal. This is a powerful and relatable song that has a mature grandiosity that made me fall in love with it right after the very first seconds. Apart from MIIA's heartfelt vocal delivery, I am particularly fond of the emotive piano chords that are seamlessly intertwined with a steady beat and cinematic strings that together create an overall emotional atmosphere. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, MIIA said,

I wrote "Oxide" in the winter, up in the mountains of Norway; my favorite place on earth. Where I feel most at home. At that point, after a year of therapy and hibernation, I was at a very peaceful point in my healing process. I was finally able to write about something that had weighed on me for a long time. I love my father, more than I think he or anyone else will ever understand. But, relationships are complex. This song is the voice of my inner child. She used to have no voice at all. I had to write this song for her. Though I have said these words before, time and time again, the hurt never truly went away. So I had to write them down. My biggest hope (because there is hope!) is that hurt can, through honesty, become healing.
