Teacher by day, musician by night, GeoMike offers intriguing insight on catchy new single ‘Above’ 

 Electronic-driven, low-key rock vibes set against a tightly-reined frenetic energy are capturing the attention of new audiences all over the world with the new single “Above.” Coming from East Coast artist GeoMike122, the song showcases this talented musicians syncopated rap style over the top of a rapid-fire high-hat and ethereal synths for a sound that truly caresses the senses. It’s a song that makes you itch with energy. Reminiscent of a vibe made famous by David Bowie, the song explores the after-effects of a toxic and abusive relationship and offers listeners a sense of hope that there’s something brighter at the end of something tragic.  

“It was inspired by my own experience of overcoming a toxic, abusive relationship,” GeoMike said. “In the song I compare it to a fog because that’s how I felt – like I was in a mental state of fox. The partner I was with was more negative and cynical than anything else, and it took a lot of light and faith to get me through that. In the song I talk about how the fog was burned off by the sun, and in the end I rose above those experiences. I hope that my ex finds faith and searches the divine to find something not of this world – something ‘above.’” 

The song is the first off an upcoming album called “Michael Ciolino,” which is set to release on Oct. 22. It’s a project that this up-and-coming artist has been working on for the past few years in his spare time when not teaching third grade to students in the New York area. He has always had a love of music, and over the years has dabbled with different sounds and styles. Along the way he’s created a style that is certainly unique – something that he refers to as “Sound Pop.” It’s a sound that features an impressive blend of instrumentation and lyrics in ways that are equal parts intriguing and entertaining.  

“I’m trying to have my music match where I want to go in life,” Mike said. “It’s inspiring and motivating and has you question things. It’s challenging. As a teacher – and really, just as my personality – I’m always questioning things. I understand why boxes exist, but I like to think outside the box, and my music is all about advocating for you to find your own voice. I think it’s really important to have that. Music has always been inspiring to me in that way, and that’s what I want to create and provide for others. That’s why I say it’s Sound Pop – it’s genre-less. I’m a teacher who loves doing this because I love motivating people and entertaining people. We’re in a cycle where people want something that’s more original and authentic, and that’s what I hope to bring to the table.”
