FOR YOUR CONSIDEration
DRINKING ABOUT YOU
Out today, the new single from singer/producer Myra Monoka, titled ’Drinking About You’ is released
through Cat Music, licensed from AM:PM Music. The track, produced by Myra and tropical-bass
wunderkind Stas, is driven by a steady deep-house groove, with some dark & sexy analog-synth
undertones to match Myra’s bitter-sweet vocals on top.
Myra says of the song: ’Drinking about you is a song based on the fun fact that it is easier to open up in
front of your crush if first, we open up a bottle. Too bad that once you are relaxed enough to share your
magical world with them, you don't really make sense anymore. But, hey, ’what you gonna do about it’?
Myra's words about the creative process: ’Stas sent me the beat first and I got so inspired that I came up
with the lyrics real quick. This guy is something else with a sick style that matches my vision. He showed
me the art of Fanni Pápay and I got hooked instantly, so we decided to ask her to help us make something
