Bio

San Mei aka Emily Hamilton returns, following her previous cut 'Revel' which gained triple j airplay and a critically acclaimed remix from Zaped. With her heady new alt-rock single 'Rewind', San Mei's effortlessly potent vocals glide fluently over crunchy guitars with raw, understated production from Hamilton herself along with Konstantin Kersting (The Belligerents, Morning Harvey, WAAX), lending an unmistakeable frenzied tone. The pang of nostalgic longing is palpable - and so is the wisdom in preferring to have lost than never loved at all.

Relentlessly dedicated to her craft, San Mei is gearing up for the release of her as-yet untitled debut EP in 2017.

‘If you aren't already familiar, expect to hear the singer's sweet melodies and beats everywhere and anywhere’

NYLON MAGAZINE

‘Australian newcomer San Mei, shares the same slinky pop DNA as LA Chanteuse Banks’

NME RADAR

‘It is a wondrous piece of bedroom pop that has to be shared’
INDIE SHUFFLE

‘Mei‘s lilting melodies up with a feathery, weightless production that will have you drifting up into the clouds in no time’

Love those unrelenting drums under the sweet wash of fuzzy guitars and your sweet vocals. Straight to the top of my summer playlist.
