MOTHICA has released the new track “Mirage”, taken from the visual album, KISSING DEATH, released through her own imprint Heavy Heart Records partnering with Rise Records is to be released 23rd August 2024.

Death is an uncomfortable topic that most people avoid thinking about, but MOTHICA decides to dance with it on the forthcoming album. Vulnerably, she laments her personal battles with depression, addiction, and suicidal ideation, processing her pain with lush soundscapes underpinned by funereal keys, heart-thumping hard rock guitars, and disarmingly catchy moments of pop catharsis.

Speaking of the new single “Mirage”

“At one point, this record was taking a classic western inspired direction but I cut most of those songs. I love slide guitar, old church bells, and that spaghetti western influence you’d hear in a Tarantino movie. But being from Oklahoma, I always stayed away from country adjacent sounds because it’s all I ever heard on the radio. I heard about this idea in therapy I wanted to write about. People imagine achieving their goals will bring them happiness, like this still image in their mind of “once I get this, i’ll be happy forever”. But emotions aren’t permanent, it could just be a mirage of water in the desert. So this is my spin on western imagery as a Mothica song. The fans heard a snippet and nicknamed it my yeehaw-thica song.”
