The Lithuania-born, Ireland-based Mjeam emerges with a solo release fit to entrance and calm even the most stubborn of audiences.
Rise Up is beautiful, melodically inspired by the sounds of modern electro pop and synth-pop, but instrumentally soaked in a more worldly aura that impresses on multiple levels.
Appearing complete with a stunning set of accompanying visuals, the video and single release for Rise Up reaches out for your affection and holds tight to it right the way through. Quietly expressive vocals line the outer edges in a delicate yet intentional fashion, and meanwhile – various samples and fragments of audio and ideas rain down around you.
All of this is gentle yet clear-cut – crisp yet smooth, calming yet intricate and surprisingly multi-layered. The artist and producer has taken the time to build something entirely unique, made up of individually crafted and captured moments of audio. Ultimately, the effect is a rightfully uplifting call to action – a song that engages and embraces the listener, and inspires them to step forward. Within that though, there are so many details and indications of ability, that you’re left with an understanding of Mjeam as a fully immersive and passionate producer, composer and singer / songwriter.
The song is subtle yet stunning, and hopefully it’s merely a taste of what’s to come. The creative’s own demons are faced within this writing, and the result is something that prompts the listener to do the same – to overcome feelings of inadequacy, to believe in their own strength and skill, and to Rise Up.
