In the lively world of alternative rock, few artists manage to blend the introspective storytelling of personal experiences with the infectious energy of pop-punk melodies as seamlessly as Myah. Hailing from sunny South Florida known for its sunshine and beaches, Myah’s musical journey began at a young age, weaving a shade of influences from bands like Foxing, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse, Sylvan Esso, and Twenty-One Pilots. Today, she graces us with her track, “Always Want You,” a rock love anthem released on March 8 and it’s as hopeful as it is fascinating.

With an intro that will give us chills every time we hit the play button, Myah sets the tone for a deeply personal and universally relatable song with the opening lines, “I haven’t felt this way in a long time.” Her seductive vocals draw us in, wrapping around the melody with a warmth that feels intimate and immediate. There’s a sense of anticipation and excitement, a feeling of rediscovery in love that resonates through her heartfelt delivery. Her voice touched my soul and I loved it. It’s a voice that can make you believe in butterflies and destiny all at once. Also, her performance was flawless and she will utterly impress any listener.

On a lyrical level, Myah masterfully navigates the spectrum of emotions associated with love. From the initial excitement and wonder to the introspective contemplation of whether this could be real love, her words are a candid exploration of her life experiences. Lines like “I’m alive when we’re dancing through life” and “Take us there while I’m lost in those eyes” evoke a sense of cinematic romance, capturing fleeting moments of bliss that feel timeless and immediate. Also, as she sings, “You’re lookin’ at me and it all seems right,” we are invited into a world where the possibility of finding “the one” feels not just possible but real.

As I listened, one of the standout moments in the track was the chorus, where Myah repeatedly affirms, “I know I’d always want you.” This refrain is more than just a declaration of love; it’s an anthem of commitment and passion. It underscores the depth of her feelings, reinforcing the idea that true love is enduring and all-encompassing. It’s an infectious hook that will linger even after the song ends in my mind and heart.

Musically, the instrumentation of “Always Want You” complements Myah’s lyrical journey perfectly. The punk-like drums and edgy guitars inject the track with dynamic energy, providing a driving force that propels the song forward. This gritty backdrop contrasts beautifully with her smooth, melodic voice, creating a rich raw, and polished soundscape. The production strikes a delicate balance, allowing each element to shine without overpowering the other, giving the song a layered depth that reveals more with each listen.

Overall, “Always Want You” is a beautiful performance that showcases Myah’s unique ability to blend genres, emotions, and experiences into a cohesive and compelling whole. It’s a song that not only highlights her talent as a musician but also her ability to connect with listeners on a deep level. She’s got a different kind of heatwave and “Always Want You” is a scorcher that will set our hearts ablaze.
