The Mietus Touch – “Dancing in the Stars”


“Dancing in the Stars” is the latest electro-pop success from The Mietus Touch, the project of Chicago producer and multi-instrumentalist Joseph Mietus. Impressing previously with tracks like “Digits” and “Edge of Heaven,” “Dancing in the Stars” also follows up last year’s debut album, Transcendental Souvenirs.

A sparkling aesthetic success, “Dancing in the Stars” struts a soulfully suave vocal lead amidst pulsing synth-forward effervescence. Mellow synth pulses and understated vocals ascend to the charismatic “see it, you hear it,” rise. “We both got that look in our eye tonight,” Mietus sings, the synths and vocal inflection exuding a romantic yearning into the catching “bring this thing together,” culmination. Mietus’ melodic songwriting and atmospheric synth-pop production succeeds throughout “Dancing in the Stars.”

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2022’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
