Bio

'Heaven' is the second track pulled from the upcoming EP of the same name, and sees San Mei contrast dueling guitars with lush, cascading vocals to deliver a cut plucked straight from dream pop heaven.

Not everything that glitters is gold, especially when it comes to love, as San Mei explains, "This song is about when love is blind and it feels like heaven, but if you step back you can see things for what they really are. It’s about waking up to reality and letting go of something that’s going to end up causing harm, even if at first it felt like a dream."

For her upcoming EP Heaven, San Mei enlisted the help of producer Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Ali Barter, Alex Lahey, Joyride, British India and Robbie Miller). Dawson was integral in challenging and galvanizing San Mei's creative process and aural evolution. Together, they laid the foundations for San Mei's sonic progression by cultivating and refining ideas and exploring soundscapes to produce Heaven. With the creative freedom brought in by the harmonious and symbiotic collaboration, San Mei explains "[Dawson and I] hit it off straight away and it seemed like he understood where I was coming from, even when I had trouble conveying certain ideas in the demos I made at home.”

The guitars have come to the front since your previous tracks and it's working for you. Full of energy and drive.

Love how you've set a fire underneath this track. It burns with an exactness that's powerful and real.
