Video: Mythie – Mermaids

Mythie is a Lille, France-based Avant Garde artist who has caught my attention with her raw and cinematic new track and video Mermaids.

Mermaids opens in a stripped-back way. Long, mournful electronic notes accompany whispered vocals. Once the scene is set, a bass groove joins in alongside a spoken word verse. There is a confessional feel to the lyrics, speaking of darkness and lethargy. Yet, the inertia is then cast aside by a sweeping, textured climax which gave me goose bumps.

Mythie describes herself as a writer, singer, producer and “sound witch” who fabricates her sound from unexpected instrumentals paired with samples and distortions. The end result truly is something special. I can’t wait to hear more from her.
