Sydney-based duo Mid Ground are gearing up to release their collaboration with Ellen Mara, Peace in the Sky. If you can’t wait to give the track a spin, listen to the song right here on MILKY before its release!
Bringing 90's R&B to your Thursday morning, Peace in the Sky is an empowering track that promotes independence, and the inner strength that rises after leaving a toxic situation. Mara's vocals shine throughout the song, with her silky tone drawing you in as mesmerising production holds your attention. The musical project of Ally McMahon and Andrew Chara, the pair bring a level of sophistication to the release, leaning into their influences to create a unique moment within their discography.
Speaking of the release, Mid Ground share with MILKY: "Peace in the Sky explains a sentiment of finding your freedom and the ending of past relationships. The
essence of finding independence and self love are captured in the words of Ellen Mara's vocals"
Across their releases, McMahon and Chara weave together their respective British and Australian influences, finding a landscape between the two for their music to exist, which is ultimately how Mid Ground was born. Fusing together threads of jazz and R&B, the genre-bending release was born during the lockdowns of 2020, where the duo honed in on their signature sound, and is just the start of their ascent.
