“La La Land” by Mikoh is a dark pop song that is powerful enough to rescue us from the superficial world of social media, and bring us back to reality.
Mikoh combines her sweet, clear tone with eerie piano notes and production sounds. There’s an echo that puts a dark twist on her innocent-sounding vocals. The song as a whole is Mikoh’s interpretation of how social media impacts our culture. Indeed we all “pay the price of living in La La Land” with anxiety and insecurities. The unique beat and addicting melody carry the message home in a really pleasing way.

She describes her sound as a happy medium between songs you wished you’d heard after going out last night and ones you listen to before falling asleep in the early morning.
