Multitalented, melodic project Mistier starts 2024 in the same vein it excelled in 2023 with another high-quality, authentic and introspective new single. Following in the footsteps of ‘Move With Me’ and ‘Lost My Way’, Mistier’s ‘Headspace’ is soaked in dancefloor-focused grooves, resonant harmonies and relatable lyrics.
With accomplished musician and vocalist Andre Mistier at its centre, Mistier brings a collective of musical and visual creatives together on a transformative journey towards the dancefloor. The project brings a spiritual perspective to its music, forged through shared experiences on the playa at Burning Man. It’s easy to imagine crowds gathered in the Nevada desert moving to ‘Headspace’ – another shining example of Mistier’s ability to connect at a deeper level – set to the score of movement-invoking rhythms and intricately-woven layers of harmony. Encapsulated in a distinct retro membrane, its undulating 4/4 core of punchy kicks and subtly shuffling percussive drive make the perfect foundation for an expansive array of musical elements that carve out an immersive soundscape, a resonant space for Mistier’s simple yet conscious message.
Andre Mistier explains, “This song is about meditation, and about the journey towards finding meditation. If my external experience defines my perspective and mood, then I am subject to the fluctuations of external actions and actors. If things are good, I feel good. If things are bad, I feel bad. But this feels like a fundamentally out of control approach, always at the whim of other people’s additions and intrusions. This led to a need for inner solace, peace that comes from within as opposed to externally. For me, this search led to meditation as an important component of self-harmony.”
