Check out our interview with rising pop/rock artist Mistine.
After touring with endless pop acts (eg. Conan Gray, WiztheMC, Zeph), Mistine is finally releasing her debut single “Everett Park” on March 24, 2022. Everett Park encourages listeners to reclaim a space that was once tainted and make new memories. This record captures a personal yet nostalgic charm that will have listeners singing along in the car with their best friends and dancing all night in their bedrooms.
Everett Park in Los Angeles is the actual location where Mistine began and ended a past relationship. By exploring the flood of emotions after the break, Mistine takes back the emotional power by giving this space a new meaning. Through ethereal synths, high energy guitars, and romantic vocals, this song will without a doubt be playing in your head all week. Mistine completed this song from her parent’s guest room in New Jersey while FaceTiming with her old college roommate in Los Angeles and new friend in the UK. This release will be followed by a music video, subsequent single, and 5-track EP, all released before the end of summer.

Hi Mistine, please tell us a little about you?
Hello 🙂 My name is Mistine. I was born in a log cabin in Vermont, grew up in New Jersey, and since college have traveled back and forth to LA. I started playing guitar in third grade after I saw the Carly Simon music video for “With A Few Good Friends.” I played in bands and the Rockit Live Foundation all throughout high school, attended USC’s Thornton School of Music, toured with Conan Gray for over two years, and have been consistently working on honing my voice as my own artist. All I want to do is make music that makes people feel good. I am also very passionate about animals, nature, and creating a sustainable lifestyle.

What’s the story behind the song?
In Everett Park, the transcendent views of downtown Los Angeles preserve the memories of where I began and ended a confusing relationship. This full circle experience evoked the bitter sweet feelings that inspired this record. By exploring the flood of emotions after the break, I am taking back the emotional power by giving this space a new meaning. I want listeners to know that memories cannot rule a space for you.

Everyone has a place haunted by memories…Where is your Everett Park?
