ABOUT THE RELEASE
Born in the 90s, nourished by MTV’s pop stars and to the omnipresence of super-glamorous female figures, Mey questions the role of appearance in women’s lives with her first EP titled: « With the Lights Off« .
On the edge between delicacy and aggressiveness, she feeds her pop of various influences: rock, folk and hip-hop are constantly rubbing shoulders, always with a rich and intense vocal performance.
Through the four tracks of the EP (co-produced by director Julien Portmann), Mey reveals to us the vulnerable « Get Out Of Yourself” (a progressive and ethereal ballad that is reminiscent of London Grammar) , to the violent “RESPECT » (a real war cry in which she sings « Cause I’m a woman and I stand up to you”). Always in contrasts, the aerial « Muse » takes us deep into the ego fantasies of the young woman, when « Spiky Love » explores dark impulses and self-destruction.
Behind her apparent sweetness, Mey shows her rage to be emancipated, considered and respected as a woman. « With the lights off », her first EP between daydreaming and anger, embarks upon a journey of rich musical introspection.
