Johnathon NIGHTMÆR Miranda to discuss his latest single, “Letters in Red”
Disrupt Magazine recently had the pleasure of sitting down with rising artist Johnathon NIGHTMÆR Miranda to discuss his latest single, “Letters in Red.” In this exclusive interview, NIGHTMÆR gives us insight into the creative process behind the track and what listeners can expect from his upcoming music.
DM: Thanks for taking the time to speak with us today, Johnathon. Can you tell us a bit about the inspiration behind “Letters in Red”?
NIGHTMÆR: Absolutely. “Letters in Red” is a deeply personal song for me. It’s about the struggle to overcome our inner conflicts, self-doubts, self-hatred and finding redemption in the face of darkness. The lyrics are inspired by my own struggles and the emotional pain that we all experience life.
As an artist I believe in the power of poetry and music to touch a persons soul. I believe that music can be a powerful tool for individual self-expression and self-discovery, and that’s what I hope to bring to my listeners through my music.
DM: Your music has been described as a blend of emo and alternative. How would you describe your sound?
NIGHTMÆR: I think that’s a pretty accurate description. My music is emotional and introspective, with a mix of hard-hitting beats and poignant lyrics. I draw inspiration from a wide range of artists, genres and experiences. I’m always experimenting with new sounds and styles, but at the core of it all is a desire to connect with listeners on a deep, emotional level.
DM: What was the creative process like for “Letters in Red”?
NIGHTMÆR: The song started with the flamenco guitar. I had the melody and lyrics in my head, and I knew I wanted to build a song around them. I wrote the verses next, drawing on my own experiences and the emotions I wanted to convey. From there, it was a matter of finding the right production and arrangement to bring the song to life. I worked with some amazing producers, engineers and musicians on this track, and I’m really proud of how it turned out.
DM: What do you hope listeners take away from “Letters in Red”?
NIGHTMÆR: I hope the song can serve as a source of comfort and healing for anyone who’s struggling with self-doubt, fears and stressors that can lead to addiction and mental health issues. I want listeners to know that they’re not alone, and that there’s always hope for redemption and growth. I believe that music can be a powerful force for positive change, and I hope that “Letters in Red” can speak hope and positivity into people’s lives.
DM: Can you give us a sneak peek into what else you have in store for your fans?
NIGHTMÆR: Absolutely. I’ve got a lot of new music in the works, including 2 new singles I’m releasing in May that I’m really excited about. Both songs will explore themes of addiction, self-destructive behavior and a longing for change and self-redemption and I think it’s going to be something really special. I’m also planning to release a music video for “Letters in Red” soon, so be on the lookout for that. Overall, I’m just really excited to keep making music and connecting with listeners.
DM: That sounds amazing. Where can listeners go to pre-save “Letters in Red”?
NIGHTMÆR: Listeners can pre-save “Letters in Red” now and get an instant download of the song for free at my website (http://johnathonmiranda.com/pre-save). The track will be available on all major streaming platforms on April 21st.
DM: Thanks again for chatting with us today, Johnathon. We can’t wait to hear what you have in store for us next.
