Just Listen: Mi Mye – Your Left Side

Mi Mye – Your Left Side

Words: Samantha Sadler

Wakefield/Leeds five-piece Mi Mye have just released their new single ‘Your Left Side’ and it’s stunningly tragic and gorgeous in equal measures.

Originally a solo project from Scottish songwriter Jamie Lockhart, Mi Mye has now settled on a permanent line-up with Rob, Emily, Chad & Morgan all adding in their own influences and voices to create beautiful tracks. The latest single is taken from the outfit’s fifth studio release ‘The Mountain forces the Future, and the Force causes the Rain’ which is due on 28th September.

Written after Lockhart was chatting to a man who had suffered a stroke and lost the use of his left side, ‘Your Left Side’ concentrates on the idea that “everyone is scared and everyone is kind.”

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.

A poignant setting which combines exceptional storytelling and an intricate instrumental, this one is a must listen.
