I Love You Too Much, Mikalyn confesses in her infectious and romantic new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“It’s dreamy, it’s heartfelt, and it’s got a melody that floats along at a pace that reminds me of life in the small city I grew up in,” the Guelph alt-pop chanteuse says of the track, which takes a sonic sidestep from her usual EDM foothold. “The distorted drums and 808 bass from Chris give it an urban touch.”
She’s referring to producer Chris Grey (88Glam, K. Forest), with whom she’s collaborated since they were early teens. “We’ve long worked together,” Mikalyn (last name: Hay) says, “since we were discovering who we are as individual artists, and as a combined force.”
Just like their songs and production, the duo shot and conceptualized the video to accompany the track. “The video for I Love You Too Much captures and reflects the mood we wanted the listener to feel,” she shares, adding that it underscores “the longing, the hopefulness, the caution, and the beauty of the moment when you realize ‘I love you too much’ about someone.”
Mikalyn has shared the stage with Tyler Shaw, Virginia to Vegas, and more; she recently debuted I Love You Too Much while opening for Scott Helman’s livestream concert. With an inimitable voice that’s been lent to the likes of Machine Drivers, Öwnboss & Zerky, Röde, and others, Mikalyn’s 2020 singles include Gravity (w/ XtraKyd & F51), Next to Me (w/ Discover, Bored Machines & Xtro), Close (w/ RQntz, 39 Kingdom & Xtro), Sleepless Nights (w/ Zuffo & Envoy Music), Nothing but Blood, Antidote and Deep End.
