Bio

San Mei returns with a spectacular first release for 2017, with brand new single 'Until You Feel Good' and a national tour to follow . After the success of last cut 'Rewind', the Gold Coast multi-instrumentalist is gathering some serious momentum, heading straight out on a headline tour in Melbourne and Sydney, capped off with a cheeky support slot for North East Party House in Brisbane.

'Until You Feel Good' takes San Mei's intoxicating vocals and molds them into lush harmonic arrangements, which glide seamlessly over fuzzy guitar riffs. Combined with understated, subtle production from Konstantin Kersting (The Belligerents, WAAX, Tia Gostelow), the track is full of laid back grooves which escalate into soaring alt-rock melodies.

Achieving quite the list of accomplishments, San Mei has shared stages with Evar Klar, Polish Club, Elliphant and playing The Mountain Goat Valley Crawl just in the last six months. Swiftly amassing followers from across the globe, she's also received props from the likes of NME, Indie Shuffle, Nylon Mag and triple j - where she also gained spot rotation for previous single 'Rewind'.

‘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’

a real understated hit. it sneaks up on you on that third/fourth listen which is a great sign. i could get lost in this one live.

Mellow alt-rock with the right amount of fuzz and groove. A real winner!

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