Artist releases poignant new single with emotional voicemails left by fans and friends
Might Delete Later is on a mission to weave a human narrative into electronic dance music. Earlier this year, she invited fans and friends to dial her voicemail, with the freedom to leave an emotional message that she would incorporate into upcoming tracks. Might Delete Later’s new release, “I’ve Been There”, is the third single from this unique project, which sensitively navigates its subject’s vocal messages, layering spoken snippets with modular synthesizers, percussion instruments , rolling drums and electronic effects.
The project began with a voicemail sent to the artist by a loved one. The two were overcome with sadness as they shared their thoughts and frustrations about the world. “Closures, wars and other shitty things. Sometimes it’s just too much. You start to hyperventilate and don’t know what to do. You go to the bathroom and start crying,” shares Might Delete Later. The desire to affirm that we are all in the same boat inspired the continuation of the project. “We have all been through this. And this song is a message for everyone. “You’re not alone, we’ve all been there,” and that’s exactly why I had to make a song from that voicemail.
Might Delete Later is a counterpart to artist and producer Madera’s musical split personality which consists of two aliases, MDL and ANNNA. Madera hopes to transform the everyday experiences of human beings into technical dance music. In “I’ve Been There”, that’s exactly what she does.
