Mirah – “Changing Light” Review & Video

by | Jul 9, 2014 | Indie Pop

“Lyrical depth combined with haunting melodies”


Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn has been creating incorruptible independent pop music since the late 1990s. Now on her fifth solo album, Changing Light highlights her irresistible voice. With an impeccable control of her instrument, she is able to effortlessly slide from sultry tones to airy falsetto notes.

“Fleetfoot Ghost” captures her essence of light, airy, heartfelt lyrics with a relaxing guitar melody backing it up. The vocals come across with such simplicity and ease, but if you really listen to the lyrics, you can hear the complexity of her thoughts. “Gold Rush” highlights Mirah’s vocal range and orchestration by Jherek Bischoff. The runs of the string instruments and oboe blend the vocals together, creating a hauntingly beautiful track; the musical complexity pairs well with the lyrical depth.

“LC” was co-written with her sister, Emily. The vocal duo harmonizes perfectly with just a slight echo in the backing instrumentation. This song focuses on the sisters’ innate talents as they use only the prettiest notes to express what is within their hearts.  Overall, Changing Light features moments of darkness and clarity, with some interesting twists in-between.
