Bio

2014 and 2015 saw San Mei (Emily Hamilton) garner both international and local praise with her debut singles 'Wars' and 'Brighter' from taste makers NME, Indie Shuffle and NYLON Magazine tipping her as an artist to watch.

San Mei returns with 'Revel' produced by Emily and Sean Cook, (Babaganouj, Jungle Giants), and mastered by Ben Feggans (Rüfüs, Ngairre, Willow Beats, The Kite String Tangle and Dustin Tebbutt) showcasing her lush melodies, and progression beyond the bedroom and into the studio. Revel evokes the progressive-pop of Little Dragon and Ladyhawke with the guitar saunter of Mac De Marco.

‘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’

New San Mei is a fantastic way to start the week and this one's got an edge of darkness that'd set it up as the soundtrack for a pivotal scene in Cruel Intentions IV: Ronald's Revenge.

Well hi! It's been a long time between drinks (uploads). This is so lush and fantastic, I love not only the whole bedroom vibe but the effortless fusion of those hazy guitars throughout - adds a bit of grit. Really fantastic.
