It’s unlikely a female fronted electronic pop project would ever become a fave of mine here on maamf. And that’s nothing against female fronted pop stars. We’re not all St Vincent, but gosh, we’re also not all like San Mei. Thank god. Because it allows the Gold Coastian to shine through.
Much of my previous writing has made something of the innocence that seems to seep through San Mei‘s rather confident production. And the follow up to last years ‘Brighter‘, stays true to that. I’m not sure whether it was a conscious decision to leave San’s vocals just below the top of the mix, but ‘Wars’ seems to harness that vulnerability and once again, couple it with some big lush production. It’s pretty darn killer.
You can get your own copy of ‘Wars’ on the 12th of May through London label Tidal Wave.
