Mia Wray Releases Debut EP ‘Stay Awake’

Melbourne artist Mia Wray has just released her debut EP, Stay Awake. It lands ahead of a national tour that she’ll embark on throughout late February and March, kicking off at Packer Park in Carnegie, Victoria, on Saturday, 25th February.

Wray rocked up in the triple j studios this morning (10th February) for Like A Version, taking on MUNA’s 2021 single ‘Silk Chiffon’. She also performed her recent single and EP title track, ‘Stay Awake’.

Mia Wray: ‘Silk Chiffon’

“It’s nice to sing a love song about a woman,” Wray said in an interview with triple j about the cover, which keeps fairly close to the original.

“Because I love this song and the energy of it so much,” she continued. “I was able to really be myself and I didn’t feel like I was trying to do a thing just for the sake of trying to be cool or different. I just got to enjoy the song.”

We’ve heard a number of singles from Stay Awake already, including the title track, ‘Rerun’, and ‘Evidence’ – the latter of which detailed Wray’s experience of being stalked after a gig.

“This EP has been a long time coming for me and I’m so proud of it and everyone involved,” Wray said when announcing Stay Awake. “It’s been a big time of growth over the last couple of years and I feel quite overwhelmed to be able to finally share it with you. Thank you for believing in me.”
