When i was 15 my christmass present was to go to Celtic Connections and watch Stephan Grapple (the words greatest fiddle player ever) It was magical. He was so so old and was helped onstage, sat down and played the most beautifal music ever. I loved it. Ever since then Celtic Connections has had a big place in my hart and now we are getting to go and play at it :) YES XXXX

Our new single "Euro Disney' is out now
Disney uses cartoon characters as a symbol for different things, but with the idea that they have a moral quality, and that each character has an individual that people connect with. So when you go to the parks there is one you want to talk to or have your photo taken with. The early years of Euro Disney in Paris is the perfect age for lots of us to have distinct memories about, but all relating to each other.
Emily went to Euro Disney and wanted her picture taken with one of the Chipmunks, but he didn't see her as she was little and the Chipmunk was in a massive costume. Emily was heart broken and felt rejected.
While she was crying about this, her sister posed for a photo with the Chipmunk and so in the very back of the photo you can see Emily, but the edge of the photo cuts off the person that was consoling her, and no one remembers. This song from Mi Mye is the simplest of songs in many ways, it just looks at the photo.
Musically this track is sonically consistent, with a ba ba ba ba ba on the keys and the drums, with small elements of beautiful guitar and piano melodies.
our first two singles "Ok so" and Your left side" have had so many nice things written about them :) witch is so nice.
Hear are some links and some nice quotes
"Delicate, hazy vocals drift over out-of-time loops and mighty drums, creating a soaring soundscape brimming with optimism despite the sadness that reaches out and really tugs on the heartstrings" Popped Music https://poppedmusic.co.uk/2018/08/21/13758/
"Building on their experience, Mi Mye are able to surge into new areas, incorporating personal, and often quite unexpected, experiences. A mature, nuanced return, 'Your Left Side' seeks out communal between band and listener, a song about empathy, kindness, and recovery" Clash Music https://www.clashmusic.com/news/premiere-mi-mye-your-left-side
"The track's melancholy underlined by a quiet euphoria evokes the likes of The National and Frightened Rabbit (RIP Scott Hutchison) at their very best" Faded Glamour http://www.fadedglamour.co.uk/2018/07/listen-mi-mye-ok-so-album-preview.html?m=1
"Like so much of Mi Mye’s work, it’s emotional and raw, without explicitly wearing its feelings on its sleeve, like real life there’s plenty of nuance between the extremes, and it’s in that middle that sometimes the most honest, and important, music is created" For The Rabbits https://fortherabbits.net/2018/07/06/five-things-we-liked-this-week-06-07-18/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
