The gorgeous “My Mistake” was released today from Goldmyth, the Utah-based singer/songwriter who impressed in 2017 with the track “Lover’s Letdown.” Compared to that effort’s punchier pop disposition, “My Mistake” pursues a dreamy harp-led allure. The result is fully consuming, showing a melancholic pop sound with ample depth.
Goldmyth’s vocals emit an serene, angelic quality over lyrics conveying a desire to push away from self-doubt and blame. “In the past, I used to take on every crack in a relationship as my own personal mistake,” the artist writes. “Sometimes giving yourself some distance is all you need for clarity, and an appreciation for your whole journey. This song is the breath of fresh air that surrounded me when I rolled down my window and drove into a new future.”
The harps and gentle guitar twangs throughout accompany the lush vocals with consistent enjoyment; the harp sounds both show quick plucks and enveloping chordal flourishes. “My Mistake” is very easy to get lost within, touting excellent production and songwriting.
“My Mistake” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
