Brooklyn-based Middle Part creates stunning tragic indie pop laced with synths and cinematic soundscapes. His music details his struggles with mental illness and his ultimate recovery. The multi-instrumentalist songwriter went to Alaska to write and center himself. The result is “&Cry” a triumphant debut single off his upcoming six-track EP I Wish I Was Alive.
Middle Part confides, “I wanted to make sure and let go of my ego before I pursued music again so that’s a big theme in this record as well as the inability to connect especially when you’re compartmentalizing everything all of the time. I wanted to be really honest and vulnerable in this batch of songs. I’m so goddamn sensitive and hate to show it, but it just bleeds through all of my music.”
