Morgan Paros is no stranger to the chaos that seems ever-present in the world today. There’s an abundance of problems and a shortage of solutions.
Morgan Paros – Last Straw
On her debut single, ‘Last Straw,’ Paros isn’t asking us to ignore these issues. Rather, she challenges us to find peace by creating our own meaning within turmoil. Paros wants us to keep asking questions — and find inner strength by acknowledging we won’t always have the right answer.
For the last ten years, Paros made a name for herself as a touring multi-instrumentalist and recording artist. Though she’s based in Los Angeles, she’s recently been touring the world with electropop artist Ashe, and has arranged strings for the likes of Shawn Mendes, Madison Beer, and Lauv.
But now, with the release of ‘Last Straw,’ Paros is stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist. ‘Last Straw’ is both energetic and thoughtful, with Paros’s silky voice and upbeat energy bringing to mind indie pop heavyweights such as Caroline Polachek and Rina Sawayama. The track was inspired by both her private love life and love of performance, with honest lyrics that speak to the questions of her generation.
“This song is about finding refuge in yourself despite the chaos or chatter around you, having the courage to live alongside questioning,” Paros says of the track. “It’s about centring on what lights you up in a world where there might not be any light posts to guide you.”
Paros produced the track alongside her long-time partner Jeremy Hatcher, a 3x Grammy award-winning producer known for his work with Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Maggie Rogers, among others. The pair first began writing and recording songs together while Paros was in between touring.
‘Last Straw’ is a certified earworm, and the upbeat tune comes just in time for the warm, sunny comfort of the summer months. We might never have the answers for the difficult questions that are facing us right now, and that’s okay — ‘Last Straw’ reminds us that sometimes, wondering is the whole point.
“With the release of ‘Last Straw,’ Paros is stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist. ‘Last Straw’ is both energetic and thoughtful, with Paros’ silky voice and upbeat energy bringing to mind indie pop heavyweights such as Caroline Polachek and Rina Sawayama.”
