The new ‘joyride’ EP is a project about the turmoil of love, and how we change as people as it starts to fall apart. It follows on from ‘Undertones’, acting as a counterpoint to what last year’s EP stood for: a mature and smart look at love’s dissolution, written as it happened. “joyride is about holding on and eventually letting go” explains Mysie. “All the lessons I’ve learned about myself during the ride never stop”.
With a game changing Ivor Novello win in 2020 and a slew of bold, progressive releases under her belt now, Mysie continues to delve deep within herself, making intimate indie soul music that takes her listeners along with her on a journey through raw and sensitive emotional spaces.
“From the first time we met, it was always very clear to me that Mysie was an extraordinary talent” adds Fraser T. Smith. “Working closely with her over the past two years and watching her develop into one of the country’s most exciting new artists and songwriters has been a fantastic experience for me and the 70Hz team. The joyride EP is Mysie’s best work to date, as she opens up her heart, mind and soul – and takes the listener on an intimate, beautiful, rhythmic journey”.
Mysie has received unanimous praise for her music from all corners of the media, including Sunday Times, The Fader, Evening Standard, Notion, Hunger, Dork Magazine, Radio 1, 1Xtra & 6 Music, whilst also being tipped as one to watch by the likes of The Guardian, The Independent, Gal-Dem, TMRW, Dork Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit and more.
Mysie – as the artist and indeed the person – is ever evolving, with ‘joyride’ the next instalment in her process. Look out for more music in the coming months and be sure to catch Mysie at this year’s Great Escape Festival, with more live shows soon to be announced.
