Pull Away is the heartbreaking new song from Austrian singer songwriter Mira Lu Kovacs.
By Graeme Smith
If you’ve ever been in a toxic relationship then the lyrics in Pull Away will speak to you. If that toxic relationship is with yourself, then that goes double. Pull Away is a quiet, introspective meditation of a song. Mira’s vocals, almost whispered, are accompanied by the slightest of instrumentals with droning keys and tides of acoustic guitar.
The video matches this simplicity and intimacy. Mira, lying back in an inflatable ring delivers her performance lethargically and directly to camera. The effect is mesmerising. I couldn’t take my eyes from it.
Though resident in Vienna, the song was finished off in LA with help from Mira’s former schoolmate Yakob, a producer who has worked with the likes of 6lack and Future. You can check out the video below.
