Mika is a fun, spirited artist who brings life and joy to the stage through his musical narratives and undeniable stage presence. His cheeky lyrics and stunning vocal range is what makes him unlike any other. Mika’s most recent album, The Origin of Love, shows a more mature side of this charismatic singer that is both refreshing and enlightening.

After a period of writer’s block that lasted a year-and-a-half, Mika purchased an impulse ticket to Montreal, where he was given the inspiration he had been waiting for. The goal of the record was to devote 12 equally incredible songs to discovering what makes love the Mount Everest that it is.

The Origin of Love is an explosion of sounds and colors that will carry you through an adolescent journey of personal growth. Some songs carry a slower and softer recollection of his own struggles with crushes and loving quarrels. Others fill your mind with dreams of passion and celebration. From the simplest concept of happiness to a comparison between infatuation and drowning, his musical depth is fully expressed here. While the record has a rather happy tone, it is significantly different from his earlier work. He says he never did find the answer to love, but the path that took him “one step closer” is definitely worth your attention.

Mika’s The Origin of Love is available on iTunes and in stores everywhere.
