Frontman Jamie Lockhart started Mi Mye with his friends in Skerray in the North of Scotland and they moved down to Wakefield. Their single The Last is a tale about leaving someone and the subsequent feelings of loss.
Lockhart’s vocals are reminiscent of Shane McGowan and the energy he puts into his work is just as powerful. The Last starts off slow before bursting into a stunning chorus with graceful backing vocals simmering in the background. It leaves you needing to put it back on as soon as it finishes.
The B sides on this single De or Do It and Ichyear Eachyear are every bit as good and definitely deserve to be singles in their own right.
Mi Mye are certainly a band to watch out for.
