Mary Middlefield has today released her new single titled ‘Atlantis’ from her upcoming EP. For a 22 year old former music student, Mary delivers a song that is way, way, way beyond her years of perceived experiences. But here it is. That wise old man set to music. Beautiful music, at that.

‘Atlantis’ is a poetic confessional metaphorically dropping vivid emotion conveyed through the poetry of a true artist.

This is a song to get lost in.

About Mary Middlefield

In Lausanne, Switzerland, wildflower-trails blaze with ultraviolet color, mountains of myth surround a lake of sapphire. It’s a beauty so intense that it pacifies itself, turns still, and silent. Musician Mary Middlefield—who, for all her life, has called Lausanne home—splits the landscape apart, turning it into a wild scream. Her music is like a howl in the beautiful wilderness.

A former student of classical violin, 22 year-old Mary Middlefield now wields high drama, desire, and vulnerability as keys to making meaning in a complicated universe, where love and abuse coincide. Her roomy, stream-of-consciousness songs veer between a keening pop-punk fueled intensity and a lovely folk-inspired softness, inspired by the likes of Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, as well as more recent artists like Claud, Jockstrap and The Japanese House.

Mary Middlefield’s upcoming EP is a purging of emotion, one that’s allowing her to move forward with a clear mind and a clean palette. But for now, this is music for the people who are stuck, scorned and lonely. Middlefield invites you to suffer and yearn and scream alongside her.
