Mizan K, born in Chicago and raised between Ethiopia and New York, released a song called “7 Billion” last week, a rumination on the world’s difficult to comprehend vastness and our place in it, and we’re happy to premiere a new song and video from her today.
“Looking For” is a little more upbeat than “7 Billion,” with a funky bounce in its step, as Mizan asks, “What are you looking for?” She explains: “‘Looking For’ is about trying to figure out what you should want, the paralyses that it can cause and the hope that you project into the future for an answer - maybe the answer is time, maybe it’s a new friend, maybe it’s a previously latent switch that spontaneously turns - on some internal revolution. But the song is not meant to be heavy, its teasing the victim of this so called crisis while also consoling them.”
Mizan K has directed and produced a video for each song on her upcoming Dark Blue EP - it’s her “way of restating the song’s mood.” Watch the the black and white video for “Looking For” above, and keep an eye out for the EP, dropping November 6 via Terrible Records. -- P&P
