Mary Middlefield Sees The Darkness Of Desire With New Single “Heart’s Desire”

Evocative lyrics and an enveloping, ethereal atmosphere

Swiss folk-pop artist Mary Middlefield is proud to share her latest single “Heart’s Desire.” The track follows December’s single “Atlantis”, and is the latest from Mary Middlefield’s upcoming EP, due out this spring.

Continuing the Swiss artist’s position as a leading alternative pop artist, “Heart’s Desire” showcases evocative lyrics and an enveloping, ethereal atmosphere enhanced by lush guitars. Detailing the horrors of statutory rape, manipulation and grooming, “Heart’s Desire” sees Middlefield delivering a casually brooding tune.

“This is a song about statutory rape and falling for a manipulative, inappropriately older man. There’s nothing romantic about it, and it shouldn’t be treated as such. It is common for young women to be preyed on by people with authority who not only use toxic methods to achieve their goals, but also project their desires, whether sexual or professional. I wanted to express how it feels to live through abuse and experience it first-hand in a song. The song already contains most of my personal experience, so I won’t disclose too much,” says Mary Middlefield of “Heart’s Desire.”

Mary Middlefield’s upcoming EP is a purging of emotion, one that’s allowing her to move forward with a clear mind and a clean palette. But for now, this is music for the people who are stuck, scorned and lonely. Middlefield invites you to suffer and yearn and scream alongside her.
