Mythie – ‘Mermaids’

Mythie’s ‘Mermaids’ is a stunning cinematic pop track with trip-hop sensitivity and alluring, whispery vocals, and “an ode to women on a background of electronic music that borrows from the universes of Björk… The best taster of upcoming EP ‘Until the fight’, due out this Fall….

About Mythie

With her cinematic, dreamlike work, Mythie is making her way through the alternative electronic music scene in France. Taking inspiration from trip-hop, electronic pop, and minimal music, the artist welcomes us into her poetical and mystical world. There, somewhere between dreams and reality, the listener begins an initiatory journey, in which by giving into the darkness, they might just find light.

Writer, singer, and producer all at once, Mythie is one of the “sound witches”, those who research music as much as they’re making it. As such, she likes to “fabricate” her own sounds, from instruments (kalimba, stylophone, keyboards, melodica…), that are then sampled, edited, and changed, as well as her voice, altered, multiplied, and passed through her machines. Always remaining curious, she constantly experiments, so much so that she sometimes surprises herself.

You may have seen her alongside famous French musicians: opening shows for Dominique A, or as a backing vocalist for Wax Tailor. She also worked in residence with Chapelier Fou, who helped her launch this solo project. Mythie is currently working on her debut EP, planned for next autumn. This will be part one of an introspective diptych, centered around animal guides.

This year, the artist also started an organization called Mermaids, helping to promote the work of women in production. She also plays and writes music for a show called Baby Pop, designed to introduce young kids to the joys of electronic music.
