Mhairi – Crystalline


She’s only 20 but her debut track is unquestionable. Mhairi, that you pronounce “mah-ree”, comes from Bournemouth, a city on the southern coast of England. Her debut track “Crystalline” reminds the wild sea resisting the rocks and the wind that often gives you chills. Her indietronica/R&B is located somewhere on a lost island with stunning sound landscapes, not far from the trip-hop of Massive Attack, the geyser-pop of iamamiwhoami, the sensuality of Banks and the creativity of Björk.

Mhairi co-wrote the song with famous record producer Yoad Nevo, who notably worked with Sia, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp, Sugababes, Air, Morcheeba and so on. He also produced the track. By the way, it reminds us our 2015’s newcomers of the week Christine Denamur and Sara Angelica.

About “Crystalline”, she writes:

“It explores the feeling of being lost inside your own mind, and how introversion can be a detriment to your sense of self and the relationships you have. The lyrics follow an internal dialogue, and shows a kind of struggle between two parts of my mind – one that needs to indulge in being alone, and one that needs to be anywhere else other than inside my own head.”

Apparently, some blogs say that we can expect more from the artist soon. We’re really excited to hear that!
