MI MYE SHARE VIDEO FOR ‘THAT NIGHT IN THURSO’
 
ANNUAL WAKEFIELD CHRISTMAS SHOW WILL TAKE PLACE ON DECEMBER 15TH
Wakefield / Leeds quintet Mi Mye have shared a video for new single ‘That Night in Thurso’ taken from their new album ‘The Mountain forces the Future, and the Force causes the Rain”.
 
Centered around Highlands-born, and Wakefield-based songwriter Jamie Lockhart, Mi Mye are a close-knit group of five musicians (Emily, Chad, Morgan, Jamie & Rob) scattered across Leeds and Wakefield as well as various bands and musical projects including Crake, The Spills, Buen Chico and others. 
 

The quintet recently released their fifth record ‘The Mountain forces the Future, and the Force causes the Rain’ on their own label Coble Records, the next step in a journey that has seen the band build a dedicated following over the release of five records and along the way becoming critical darlings. Their tender, hopeful and beautiful music finding support and fans across BBC 6 Music, The Line of Best Fit, Gold Flake Paint, Clash Magazine, BBC Introducing, The 405, Drowned In Sound and many others.
 
Their recently released new album ‘The Mountain forces the Future, and the Force causes the Rain’ takes its name and theme from two mountains very close to where Jamie grew up in Skerray in the Highlands of Scotland, ‘Ben Loyal’ and ‘Ben Hope’. One day while observing these, Jamie started to think about the overwhelming powers that shape how a person develops, being loyal to what your loved ones believe and the realities of having and holding hopes and dreams.
 
New single ‘That Night in Thurso’ is a beautiful rumination on the idea of being an ‘incomer’ and what it means to make somewhere your home. Jamie explains, “Now I live in Wakefield I am considered to be Scottish, but when I grew up in Scotland I was considered to be the last-born son of an incomer, and I romanticised the idea of moving somewhere where I was not that and could belong. But now I’m in Wakefield I romanticise the coast and the environment that I came from. So, in my mid to late 30s I spend a lot of time thinking about being somewhere else, or dreaming of something I’ve done before, but meanwhile I’m ignoring things I could do to make this place better now. Or we are all ignoring it and deciding it’s not our time or place or problem, and all sit with our backs to it..”
 
Mi Mye will also be hosting one of their customary and much-loved Christmas parties in Wakefield on the 15th of December at the beautiful and intimate Grade 1 listed Chantry Chapel in Wakefield, run in conjunction with Long Division Festival.
 
Mi Mye’s new album and tickets for their Christmas special are available now from www.mimye.com
