MUSIC: Mizan -“Thru”
by Maya Aaliya
Mizan continues to bring the Dark Blue EP to life with her latest video for “Thru.” The song’s lyrics, which triumphs the ambitious dreamer over the deterring pitfalls of failure, encourages fellow strivers to carry on, singing, “If you ever forget/I’ll remind you/If you’re weary/I’ll pull you through.” Mizan’s way of thoughtfully weaving meaning into her music is as heartfelt as the accompanying visuals. In what looks like a home movie reel, her understated beauty on display, but Mizan does not play to the camera. Instead, she captures the sun and sky of a day well spent. Like the ease of her music, the “Thru” video does not try too hard to please, it just does.
