What’s the best word to describe diving head-first into a new relationship despite previous doubts? Some would say “illogical,” which is what Mykyl is basing his newest electro-pop single off of, entitled “Logic.” Fledgling relationships are hard to pinpoint; you get a load of mixed signals, you do stupid teenager-ish things together, and when it finally seems you’re both on the same page, one of you gets cold feet and begins to second guess themselves. “Logic” is all about capturing the back-and-forth feeling of beginning that new relationship and overcoming the “logic” that you wouldn’t work out together and instead giving it a try, believing in the feelings that you have for one another.
“Logic” is an ode to synth-pop and Ed Sheeran-like love lyrics; the first few seconds of the song immediately tells the listeners what kind of vibe Mykyl is going for. There is a constant heavy synth that hangs in the background, and with the chorus’ catchy beats, “Logic” sits between upbeat and chill, oscillating in a gray zone. Mykyl’s songwriting adds to both of these aspects– the lyrics, as previously mentioned, are reminiscent of Ed Sheeran’s classic storytelling music style. “Logic” is full of affection and the push and pull of a new relationship; it tells the story of two people who want to start a relationship, but one of them keeps taking a step back. Mykyl sings, “I know we were born to break the rules/but now you’re second guessing all the things we do”; that hesitation feels so relatable, reminding me of standing on the precipice of a choice that may either be heaven-sent or end up being a car crash. In spite of the need to pull back, “Logic” spends a lot of time being that encouraging voice when you’re feeling indecisive about a relationship. The song's core says that sometimes you have to abandon logic when it comes to seeing a new person– of course it might end badly, but it also might be the best thing you’ve ever done. You’ll never know until you try.
Mykyl’s music career began in the midst of the 2020 pandemic and has only blossomed in the years since he released his first single “Never Be.” His discography is vast and filled with honest and vulnerable music; his songs are truthful in their sincerity and passion. Like a warm clasp of a hand lifting you up from a fall, Mykyl releases music that makes his listeners feel supported. Mykyl’s following has grown significantly since his debut release back in 2020, as his monthly listeners on Spotify now reach over 270,000. “Logic” is currently his newest single, and it is definitely worth every listen.
