OUT APRIL 22nd
Gold Coast based artist San Mei is set to release her new single ‘Revel’ April 22nd.
2014 and 2015 saw San Mei (Emily Hamilton) garner both international and local praise with her debut singles ‘Wars’ and ‘Brighter‘ from taste makers NME, Indie Shuffle and NYLON Magazine tipping her as an artist to watch.
San Mei returns with ‘Revel’ produced by Emily and Sean Cook, (Babaganouj, Jungle Giants), and mastered by Ben Feggans (Rüfüs, Ngairre, Willow Beats, The Kite String Tangle and Dustin Tebbutt) showcasing her lush melodies, and progression beyond the bedroom and into the studio. Revel evokes the progressive-pop of Little Dragon and Ladyhawke with the guitar saunter of Mac De Marco.
Praise for San Mei
‘If you aren’t already familiar, expect to hear the singer’s sweet melodies and beats everywhere and anywhere’
‘Australian newcomer San Mei, shares the same slinky pop DNA as LA Chanteuse Banks’
‘It is a wondrous piece of bedroom pop that has to be shared’
‘Mei‘s lilting melodies up with a feathery, weightless production that will have you drifting up into the clouds in no time’
Praise for ‘Revel’
‘This one’s got an edge of darkness that’d set it up as the soundtrack for a pivotal scene in Cruel Intentions IV: Ronald’s Revenge’
