Barely two and a half minutes long, solo, self-taught Mitya Burmistrov (known as MITYA) releases a funky, psychedelic pop track “Out of My Way” featuring liyolei. The single describes the desire to cling to a relationship that is destined to fail as the other person in it is no longer there. MITYA depicts scenes of nature throughout the verses, including planting a new garden and running into a volcano after “roaming in the Arctic void,” as symbolism. How far will one person go to sustain a relationship? With a tempo change before the bridge, the song resolves itself by MITYA’s last line reading “But now, I’ll go.”
The new single is MITYA’s third release of the year and part of his larger project, Altaidelica. This project is MITYA’s daring trip to the Altai Mountains to record his album. MITYA described it as a project “where I record my debut album with shamans and find my true love.”
