MOUSE

Bristol hyper-pop artist shares remix of latest single ‘Grow’ by lo-fi producer Saaaz

Bristol hyper-pop artist Mouse has today shared the remix of her single ‘Grow’  by follow Bristolian Saaaz. The window rattling-bass and looping, skipping vocals that Saaaz uses to warp the track has turned the previously metallic pop track into something a lot more introverted. 

The source track ‘Grow’, out August 28th, is a personal story of rebirth, about the moment Mouse entered a recovery period after struggling with Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder and Depression. An advocate for positive change, Mouse uses ‘Grow’ to explore how she came out of this dark period, and found life after mental health problems.

Mouse explains the new collaboration: “I’ve admired Saaaz’s unique talents since her Illegal Data set earlier this year and was thrilled when she agreed to do a remix of Grow with me. I absolutely love what she’s done with it and find myself listening to it all the time.”

Taking her name from her an introverted nature and stature she was once ashamed of, Mouse came into being after she took her singing teacher’s advice (Dan Tompkins of progressive metal band TesseracT) and began posting cover videos online. After featuring on Anki’s single and second album opener ‘Our Escape’ a few months later in Summer of 2018, the Bristol-based-Scottish-raised singer quickly became embedded amongst the burgeoning left-field electronic scene in Bristol, playing her first show at Illegal Data, the forward-thinking, inclusive club-night curated by one half of Giant Swan. The show was recently featured in Boiler Room and British Council’s documentary ‘Keep Bristol Weird’. 

Keen to assert herself on record and flex her production muscles, Mouse released debut single ‘3 Weeks’ late 2018 which received global press coverage and radio play. Second single ‘Escape’ was BBC Upload and BBC Introducing in The West’s Track of The Week shortly after release and Mouse was subsequently invited for a BBC Introducing live session. The track was also given a head-spinning remix by Heavy Petting.

 Mouse has been careful to curate her live appearences; a support slot with Dua Lipa was followed by playing Colston Hall’s ‘Bristol Takeover’ and then the headline slot at Rough Trade Bristol for Dot to Dot 2019. She is currently staying tight lipped on where she’ll next pop up, but with some big projects already being lined up, this is only the beginning for Mouse.
