Last summer, Myra Molloy made her debut as a singer, songwriter, and producer with “stay.” The track was about a long distance relationship that she was having, made all the more real with the pandemic. Myra was having very strong feelings about the situation, so she decided to put the production skills she learned at Berklee to use, showcasing that she can write, produce, and perform her own music like a pro. As she gets ready to release her debut EP later this year, which will contain more original music, Myra is releasing “other love” from the upcoming project.
Gentle but still very compelling, “other love” takes a sharp look at heartbreak. Over soft electronic production, Myra gets into the aftermath of a breakup, detailing the anger and the pain she experienced. Calmly, she sings, “My heart was never yours to break / I won’t hesitate to call you out on your mistakes” and “Don’t try to compensate for all the pain, cause it’s too late,” firmly standing her ground. In the end, she states, “better luck with some other love,” giving this person who broke her heart a final sendoff. You can check it out below.
Describing the creative process for “other love,” Myra shares,
“It started off as an emotional acoustic ballad, but as time went on, I felt like I could bring new life to it. So then came the electronic version. Same lyrics and original piano (now slightly warped), but now with a bit more kick (literally).”
You can listen to “other love” on platforms like Apple Music and Spotify.
