MUNA – Winterbreak

MUNA

MUNA

Los Angeles alternative girlband, MUNA return with a video for ‘Winterbreak’, which features Ione Skye of ‘Say Anything’ fame.

Speaking about the video, MUNA says:

“The ‘Winterbreak’ video is about the dual experience of belonging and non-belonging involved in returning to a former home. Often when we’ve visited the places we grew up in, we’ve found ourselves in the strange space between nostalgia and total regression. We visit familiar places in which we no longer fit, surround ourselves with familiar people with whom we don’t necessarily connect anymore, and engage in familiar activities that might normally strike us as incredibly immature. Despite being in the same world we were immersed in as children and adolescents, there is a sense there that almost everything about ‘home’ has changed. Generally for us, the only solace has been really great friends. So we tried to show some of that.”

Their debut, ‘The Loudspeaker EP’, will arrive on 6 May via RCA Records.

Sounds like: KALEIDA, The Levity, Paperwhite, Monogem, Shura, Solange, Charli XCX, Kita Alexander, VÉRITÉ, Salt Ashes, Palmedo, Prinze George, The Japanese House, Imogen Heap

Premiere: Myami – I Oh I

MYAMI

MYAMI

Melbourne-based songstress MYAMI returns with another cracker, ‘I Oh I’.

Like with ‘Soldier‘, this track has been produced by Wayfarer//.

MYAMI still cites influences from old school soul singers with ‘I Oh I’ and this can be see from the trap style drums sneaking in at times, but essentially ‘I Oh I’ is a slightly more modern and edgier take on the traditional R&B.

MYAMI says about the track,

“The confusion of growing up as a competitive teenager and trying to figure out who you are amongst the jungle of voices telling you who to be. The song is a flash back to look at the person I was, growing up in the often toxic surroundings of a teenage girls life”.

Sounds like: B.Miles, Tove Lo, Susanne Sundfør, OH Land, Prinze George, LA+CH
