Miette Hope – Enough

Since its release I’ve had a hard time listening to anything other than “Enough” by Miette Hope.

Musically it’s incredible – produced by the inimitable Ariza, there are distinctive heavy drums in the distance and strumming guitars in the periphery, as Miette’s voice cuts through it all with soaring melodies.

Lyrically it cuts deep- a powerful sincerity delivered with a tinge of regret. There’s a beating heart behind these words and you can hear it viscerally. It’s a song for those who push themselves just a bit too far for the sake of feeling satisfied and it’s all-too-relatable.

Keep an eye out for this one – I have a feeling this is just the beginning for this rising artist!

In her words:
After resorting to extreme isolation and turning inward for many months I started to search for external factors to fill the empty space inside me. I searched for it in drugs and alcohol in an effort to feel closer to understanding my father’s substance abuse but all it really did for me was make me feel more numb. I searched for it in people, trying to fulfill the love and validation that had been taken out from under me. I starved myself, I over ate, I slept too much, slept too little. The emotions I felt during that time are encompassed in a single question- ‘Will it ever be enough?’… ‘Enough’ is about filling an empty space. It’s about over indulging to try and feel whole again” – Miette Hope
