The latest track from the album begins with Mija greeting a familiar stranger over tender keys. But then, blissful liquid drum ‘n’ bass madness washes over the listener like a rush of endorphins. The new single evokes both nostalgia and romantic optimism, which is a creative goal of Mija’s as she blends electronic production with emotive indie songwriting.
The track features additional writing and production chops from UK producer and instrumentalist, Gammer, who trades in his signature happy hardstyle sound for the melodic, stylistically fluid collaboration. Gammer, along with Noisia’s Thys, stand as the only two features on Desert Trash.
The day after Desert Trash arrives (February 26), Mija will embark on a tour with a fully loaded band — Mija, of course, taking on vocals. The live tour, which features HANA and Foxy Panic as support, concludes with Mija’s performance at Electric Forest Festival.
