The latest of these releases from the artist is her immersive new single ‘Bite My Tongue’, a track that sees Mia exploring her past relationships and trying to reconcile with and fulfil the one person that matters; herself.

We love the depth and charm of the new release, and had a chat with Mia Mormino to find out a bit more about it and how it came together.
Hey! We love your new single ‘Bite My Tongue,’ what more can you tell us about it?
Thank you so much! I love it, too! This song started out as a love song but quickly became a moment of self-realization. I’ve consistently tended to jump from relationship to relationship to ultimately avoid the daunting task of loving myself. With time and tons of therapy, I’ve learned that loving somebody else is not the same as loving yourself. So this song is basically me calling myself out for a pattern I’ve developed but am currently breaking.
What was the process like putting it together?
The process of creating this track was so enjoyable from start to finish. Working with Brian Kennedy and Angélique Cinélu provided me with such a safe space to develop the song. It’s miraculous how much better a piece turns out when surrounded by individuals with as much talent, warmth, and wisdom as they have.
