Today XS Noize are pleased to premiere the video for San Junipero the new single from MYO. This forward thinking 4-piece spend their time programming synths, crashing Ableton and battling midi controllers. Combining the expressive vocals of Sisa Feherova with the angular hip-hop influenced playing and writing of guitarist Jim Daoud, MYO is trying to find the human touch in the world of programmed electronic music.
Their co-conspirators in this search are bass experimenter Pete Bennie and drummer/producer George Bird whose conception of sound and rhythm is constantly in flux between the digital and analogue.
The result is a densely layered collage of neo soul guitar, mangled vocal samples and crushed drum loops, which underpins what can only be described as melodic and sincere songwriting.
New single SAN JUNIPERO plays on their harmonic jazz influences, underpinned by a groove firmly rooted in the London sound and trap beats permeating the city. SAN JUNIPERO blends the human and the programmed, crossing minimal electronic soundscapes with thoughtful songwriting sensibilities.
