Jay Miners - A Long Pause

January 15, 2021

If you loved a talented Norwegian singer-songwriter in the late 90s, Lene Marlin, then you should love Jay Miners peaceful voice. I used to fall asleep with Lene's albums when I was a teenager, and I must confess that when I heard "A Long Pause", it was like... getting back to those times. "A Long Pause" is about a relationship that is apparently coming to an end. What should we do when it happens? And above all: what should we think? The song explores the deep feelings we can go through when uncertainty is the new guest of a relationship. The melody is like a candy that is enjoyed with pleasure and which is even better when you close your eyes. Let's be honest, the production is simple. But yes! Exactly! That's what makes this song so bright, despite the heavy writing theme. The sweetness of Jay Miners won me over from the first to the last second and I'm sure you will succumb too.

Included in our "Indie Folk" playlist, and of course, you will now hear this amazing track on the Indie Music Radio.

Jay Miners's point of view :

Written about working through a difficult relationship and coming out with an understanding that it may not be the same, but will hopefully build a stronger version of it. Recorded remotely, produced/mixed by Harper James.
