Tottenham-raised artist Miraa May has released her new EP Care Package.
The five-track release sees May provide her airy and light vocals over R&B and tropical house-inspired instrumentals. The artwork for the release is anime-inspired and resembles the imagery used in manga such as Naruto.
Miraa May embraces her Algerian origins and her London spent childhood on the EP. The project opening track “Nobody” sees Miraa sing about relationships and trust issues in English and using UK slang and she also laces in Arabic terms into her verses.
The lyrics on the EP are personal and raw and tell a relatable narrative about relationships, self-confidence and emotions. “Sad” sees Miraa be honest about struggles with feeling low in mood and battling personal demons. The track is a brave and introspective release from the young artist.
Care Package follows the release of her debut EP N15 in 2016. The name of the project referenced her North London upbringing.
Similarly to Care Package, N15 was featureless and enabled the new artist to shine individually on every track. “I Don’t Want Ya (Didi)”, a project highlight on N15, received an upbeat garage remix from Next to Paradise in 2017 which proved that Miraa May can easily tackle faster paced instrumentals if and when she chooses.
Miraa May previously collaborated with Chip for the track “Scene” taken from his 2017 release League of My Own II. The track also featured Jammer, D Double E, JME and Wiley. You can check out Miraa May in the Risky Roads directed visuals here.
