Bio

Having played a mammoth nine shows at SXSW to huge international buzz, Gold Coast artist San Mei today unveils her new single ‘Something Good’, her first release with Australian indie label etcetc (home to artist like PNAU, George Maple and more).

Produced alongside Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Alex Lahey, Ali Barter, British India), ‘Something Good’ is another step forward in the guitar heavy, delay-ridden, dreamy pop that is San Mei.

“I wrote Something Good when I had a sort of revelation about a situation in my life where I was fully taking things for granted and not recognising that I had something really special in front of me,” says San Mei, aka Emily Hamilton. “It's about the beauty of hindsight and hoping that I'd woken up in time to rescue this thing and let it grow into something beautiful.”

Straight off the back of a national theatre tour with ARIA Award-nominee Jack River, San Mei’s maiden headline tour around the country with the ‘Something Good’ tour kicks off in Adelaide on September 20, with Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney to follow, capping it off at Yours & Owls Festival in Wollongong on October 5.

Not content with stopping or waiting, San Mei hits Sydney and Melbourne with Grammy-nominated, alt-hip-hop star K.Flay at her Splendour sideshows, with November dedicated to the main-supporting role under Ali Barter and a slot at This That festival in Newcastle.

You're right. This certainly is something good. Fab fusion of rock, pop and dance. Perfect driving song too, I recon.

Heavily charged and San Mei's gorgeous dreamy voice is the cherry on top. Every time.

I think San Mei's really amped it up on this new track. It's sounding so strong and confident! After a few memorable rockers she's showing us she can mix in a pop element and pull it off.
