MÏRÄNDÄ SHARES NEW VIDEO + SINGLE “STAY” VIA THE DELI | SINGLE OUT NOW VIA INFINITE COMPANION
“With its lush and full sound, we bet you’ll be hooked.”
– Pancakes & Whiskey
Today, NYC-based self-produced, electronic pop artist Mïrändä shares her new single “Stay” – a theatrical, dynamic, orchestral pop-rock anthem – and its official music video. The track features carefully crafted orchestration, with lyrical elements that present the dichotomies between desperation and hope, desire and love. The track explores various themes surrounding human connection, both physical and emotional, while touching on topics surrounding human desire and love.
The Deli shared a first look of the video and single, praising, “New York synthpop tour de force Mïrändä returns with a new series of anthemic electronic singles, her latest offering “Stay” a powerfully energetic meditation on desperation and hope, desire and love.” Mïrändä recently signed to Infinite Companion, with her song “Formula”, kicking off the release of her new singles series, “Formularcana” in November. “Stay”, the second single from this series, is out now on all streaming platforms via Infinite Companion – keep an eye out for more news about “Formularcana”, new material out this Spring.
The cover art for this release, and following singles, is inspired by the major arcana cards of the Tarot. For “Stay,” Mïrändä has chosen the The Hermit to exemplify this song.

“Stay is a theatrical, classic rock, symphonic pop anthem about the desire for human connection, and about a crippling fear of being alone. It’s about navigating hookup culture today, attempting to conform to its expectations. And it is about the blurred lines between sex and love.
While the lyrics express a sense of desperation, the melody and instrumentation are hopeful. I was listening to a lot of Queen when I wrote and arranged this piece, which I think is evident in the harmonies. This song has more classical influence, mainly baroque, than anything else I’ve written. I have always loved harpsichord and I was so thrilled when I was able to add it to the song.
For the cover art I chose The Hermit to represent this song because upright it represents soul-searching, introspection, and inner guidance, while reversed it represents isolation, loneliness and withdrawal.” – Mïrändä
