Mothica – Water Me Down | New Music
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mothica has made huge waves in the Dark Pop genre, beginning with her debut EP Mythic in 2015. Now, in preparation for an upcoming EP Ashes in May, the singer-songwriter reveals the next cut from the project, her new single “Water Me Down“.
Picking up right where her 2017 EP Heavy Heart left off, “Water Me Down” hears the singer delve into familiar territory on a pop/electronic crossover single. Delivering a poignant retrospective vocal performance on past relationships, Mothica showcases an impressive set of vocal chops that fluctuates from nuanced singing techniques to room commanding crescendos on the song’s chorus.
“‘Water Me Down‘ is written about refusing to dilute your personality to please someone else, even if it’s perceived as ‘too intense.’ I’ve been in relationships that felt like the other person wanted me to be more polite, quiet or moldable. When I was whiskey, they were water. But I’ve always gone into things with one hundred percent of myself or absolute zero. There’s no in-between.”
Having burst into the scene only a few short years ago, Mothica has amassed over 60 million streams and garnered support from outlets including The FADER, Earmilk & Pigeons and Planes. The vocalist has been nurturing her art ever since while ultimately establishing herself as the artist to know in the future.
