Spring Awakening Track of the Week – Mielo & Ieuan “Pretty When U Cry”
Spring Awakening Music Festival is in full swing. The festival enters into its final day today, with everyone still flying high from the weekend. But the final day of a festival doesn’t mean the party is winding down. Every stage of the festival will be packed with people dancing and smiling. This week, we thought we’d showcase an artist hitting Spring Awakening Music Festival for another year. This local native is gaining popularity with a versatile sound and unmistakable talent. This week’s Track of the Week comes from Mielo with support from Ieuan, “Pretty When U Cry.”
The track opens up with a voicemail from someone mulling over the past. She’s uneasy about “the way we left things” and wants him to call her back. The angelic voice of Ieuan enters with a story we’ve heard many times before; the pained confusion of a man who loves a woman he seems he cannot have. He’s confused and has several questions. He might never get answers. As the track gains momentum, the hard-hitting bass coming from Mielo brings the energy up quickly. “Pretty When U Cry” is the perfect combination of emotion and dance. The track has dark, minor tones and the remnants of a heart scorned. The track is perfect for the festival crowd with a hard drop and a catchy chorus. Check it out below.
We hope Mielo drops “Pretty When U Cry” at his set today at the Solstice Stage at 3:30 PM CST at Spring Awakening Music Festival in Addams/Medill Park.
