With just one day left to go until he releases his Small Talk EP, the multi-talented MNEK has decided to premiere, “More Than A Miracle” and “Suddenly,” the final two tracks from the long-awaited set! On “More Than A Miracle,” the London singer-songwriter-producer packs another dose of his soaring vocals on-top of a infectious bassline that slowly builds into a insanely addictive chorus that won’t be easy to forget any time soon. “The shattered glass broken on the floor / is like my hand linking into yours / together back to where we were before / it’s gonna take more than a miracle,” MNEK declares on the epic dance track.
While on “Suddenly,” his “personal favorite,” MNEK pours out some raw emotion like never before above minimal drum patterns and sparse, ambient electronica. “‘Suddenly‘ is one of the very few songs I’ve ever written that was based on a real story,” MNEK told FADER. “It’s about this time when I was 18 and I became infatuated with somebody really quickly after making out with them in a club. I was already making plans in my head of what could have been and how we could have been together. They led me on to think it was the start of something but then I got friend-zoned cos “it’s a crazy time in their career right now.” It left me a bit dark inside for a minute, and it led me to write this song. It has one of my favourite lyrics I’ve ever written; ‘Can we afford to be a chord or are we just drifting melodies?’ This is ‘Suddenly.'” A genuinely powerful performance.
I’m absolutely blown away, MNEK‘s ability to effortlessly integrate his soulful voice into these genre-bending productions is simply outstanding. I am consistently impressed by him – Can not wait for this EP!
