Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Miranda Joan is back with a funky new song in the form of “Bada Bing!” (feat. CARRTOONS) It’s the latest single to come since the release of her debut album Windborne a few years ago and its introduction to her enthralling effusions of soul-pop. A sound inspired by an eclectic range of vintage and contemporary pop-wayfarers: from Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder to Little Dragon and Robyn.

Radiating with a euphoric vibrance, “Bada Bing!” offers a shimmering stage from which the sumptuously-voiced artist coos her elegantly loving lyricism. Created in tandem with producer CARRTOONS it layers beaming keys over the groovy drawl of lush basslines and simmering percussion. “Catch me in the bedroom / Catch me playing every song you know,” she coos. “I’m wondering if you’re wondering / About me the way I do with you.”

The new single also comes with a music video directed by Gigi Nettles that’s greatly inspired by the television series “The Sopranos.” One that recreates with Joan various iconic moments from the show — including its opening and final scenes — doing her best Tony Soprano impression pasta and all. Filmed across New Jersey the video is both hilariously fitting and funky.

Joan said of the video: “I knew I wanted to dress up as Tony, lean over my giant bowl of pasta, drive to New Jersey, and dance around in front of some landmark locations of the show including The Bing and that is exactly what we did.”

If you enjoyed “Bada Bing!” you’ll want to listen to the rest of the singles that Joan has shared over the last two years. There’s the gleaming spaciousness of “Coffee” that overflows with her honeyed vocals and the kinetic ebullience of “Too Much.”
