Vancouver duo Mu, aka Francesca Belcourt and Brittney Rand, released their sophomore EP II today via Boompa and have celebrated with a premiere of the video for “Debauchery”, with a Q&A from Beat Magazine – share via YouTube. Mu will celebrate with performances in Vancouver,February 18 at The Fox Cabaret, and February 19, in Victoria at the Upstairs Cabaret, supporting label mates Dralms.
Mu’s unique and exotic sound draws on the emotions and experiences of twenty-somethings in a jaded, yet still hopeful world. The duo announced II in December with the premiere of “Debauchery“, via The Fader. Followed by “Vampire“, an ode to the ones that vandalize our spirits and dine on the effervescence of thinkers, romantics and creators,” last month via Stereogum, who stated, “They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and this song is pretty freakin’ strong.” The EP streamed this past week via CBC Music First Play who called the record, “a chilled out, underwater dance party… like we’re all floating and blissed out on the ocean’s floor, weightless and free,” and a Q&A with HelloGiggles.
Mu emerged in 2014 with their debut EP, featuring the single, “To Be Young”, named a ‘Track Of The Month’ by Dazed & Confused, alongside FKA Twigs and Future Islands. Over the past year they have perfected their craft, performing regularly in their hometown. Additional tour dates, beyond British Columbia, are in the works, and will be announced in the coming weeks.
