Uplifting “Mountains” From The Analog Girl Delivers Inspiration, Majestic Views

Electronic music diva The Analog Girl just released her new video for the single “Mountains” off her fourth album “Golden Sugar Crystals,” – and it’s a stunner. While glorious images of majestic mountains are displayed, affirming positive messages also appear, from the likes of Rumi, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi , Jack Kerouac, and ABBA among others. Coupled with the melancholy, warm analog beauty of the tune and the gorgeous images, it’s a worthwhile way to spend four minutes.

Aside from their universal meanings, the uplifting quotes in the video have personal meaning to The Analog Girl, aka Mei Wong of Singapore, who worked her way through tough times while creating the recent album.

She writes, via email: “I picked inspirational and lyric quotes that particularly lift my spirits during dark times. Through the writing of ‘Mountains’, I also came to realise that the universe is so much more than what’s harbouring inside our minds and that we shouldn’t be held hostage by people’s intimidations and one’s own fears. I sometimes write in a visual manner, and as I revisited one of my all-time favourite tracks ‘Eagle’ by ABBA, I pictured myself soaring through the limitless skies above what seem like treacherous (but at the same time, kind and protective) mountainous terrain. And that imagery is reflected in both the lyrics and music video.”

Wong’s growth is apparent throughout “Golden Sugar Crystals,” with its reflective and personal (yet still somewhat abstract) lyrics and enchanting electronic pop songs. The lyrics to “Mountains” emphasize the “you are what you think” aspect that makes inspirational literature so useful and important:

As the sun begins to shine upon the earth you’ll start to know
The world beyond you
We can fly across the universe and wave our fears goodbye
If you know how to

Too much to make it last
Too little to be found
It’s all within your heart
Just open up and see this

Too much to make it last
Too little to be found
It’s all within your mind
Just open up and feel this

Since releasing “Golden Sugar Crystals,” in addition to overseeing the production of videos (she created the video for “Mountains” herself) she finds her tunes in high demand on digital platforms. She writes: “I’m really enjoying the release of my latest album. 5 years since my last album is a long time. Didn’t realise the landscape has changed that much. I have a whole lot of support from my distribution team as they have an office now in Singapore and it’s been so much fun working with them, Apple Music and Spotify. Streaming is such a huge thing now and it makes every release that much more timely and responsive. Keeps it fresh for everyone.”
