This is some solid indie pop—smart lyrics, tasty hooks, very nice vocals…Check it out!
And in case you’re wondering, yeah, she’s the one who went viral with her Robyn cover (see below for the video, under the album stream).
Mieke looks like a teeny-bopper singer, but don’t hold that against her. She writes and performs her own material, and it’s damn good. My particular favorite line is from Vulture, “I’ve written songs for you/They were not deserved/I’ve given words to you/Didn’t know their worth.” But Sleeping Alone is the obvious single off her eponymous EP.
I’m loving her voice and songcraft. Check it out.
Do you miss No Doubt? I mean, not early in the band’s life, but at around 1992, when they were killing it with hit single after hit single. If you do, this is the band for you. Any ska influence is buried under crystal clear pop. But don’t underestimate it, or write it off as fluff—these are songs. Songs. Not just hooks.
Plus, you can dance to it.
Check it out.
