about

Seed Crystal is the newest EP release by Boston-based rockers Miele.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We believe in the beautiful interconnection between music and therapy. Seed Crystal represents the birth of our attunement process, the sprouting and growing, the blossoming and flowing, the crystallization and formation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From Lauren Moquin of Allston Pudding:

"Miele has been playing songs from their EP, Seed Crystal, since last summer, but doing the full Boston venue circuit (Somerville Porchfest, The Midway Café, O’Brien’s, etc.) and perfecting every detail in the studio, each of the three songs has taken a different form. Fittingly, the lyrical content ponders the evolution and form of emotion, inspiring the psych/funk sound surrounding it all.

“The original idea to focus on the concept of crystals and crystallization came from my own reflection on the lyrical content of the three tracks featured on Seed Crystal. When I think of a unifying thread holding these songs together, it is that they all represent crystallized experiences, they all aim to capture the essence of a single moment and emotional experience,” vocalist/pianist, Melissa Lee Nilles explained."

Track Name: Hold It Together
Hold It Together

Hold it together
Pieces drifting apart and splitting into smaller fragments
Hold it together
Shards they cut my fingers when I try to pick them up

Hold it together
I know the struggle will end but when
Hold it together
I know the fight will end but when

Hold it together
Mystery of time is unknown
We don't know, I don't know, you don't know
I don't know
But I try anyway
You can get through it

Hold it together
I know the fight will end but when
Hold it together
I know the fight will end but when
Track Name: Night Sky
One tune, and I'm in Santa Cruz
Puffpuffpassing, zooming to the moon
Riding an elevator that won't stop
Hearing the bell ding as we reach the top

Black moths racing on rainbows
We reached out and we felt the earth
Wet grass brushed our toes
While the smoke caressed my nose

Limited in our potential, we felt limitless potential
Driving through space, peering out the back window
As the stars shot over our heads
We wondered, where would we go?

Black moths racing on rainbows
We reached out and we felt the earth
Wet grass brushed our toes
While the smoke caressed my nose

We stood on a hill
Looking over all those vigilant lights
And wondered about the sky
And how we were even alive
How lucky am I to be by your side?
How lucky are we to be synchronized?
How lucky am I to see the sky?
Track Name: Walking Away
Walking away
Stepping into
The dark, quiet alley

Walking away
I know I need to
But I don't really want to

There is a place
Somewhere in between
Pain and tomorrow

There is a place
Somewhere in between
Pain and tomorrow

Maybe I'll go
Wander down the valley
Where the wind is
Pushing me so

Leaving you there
All waving in the window
Smile for the moment
Never catch a single one

Intersecting connecting
Repelling rejecting
Intersecting connecting
Repelling rejecting

Propelling
Flying high
With heavy wings
As I walk away
From you

Intersecting connecting
Repelling rejecting
Intersecting connecting
Repelling rejecting

Propelling
Flying high
With heavy wings
As I walk away
From you

Glad we aligned
Even if just for a while

Glad we aligned
Even if just for a while

Yes it's true
No woman's an island
No woman's an island
