Sumie announces Mirou EP

Having released her sophomore album back in late 2017, Sumie has today announced the release of her upcoming EP titled ‘Mirou’ which features five brand new tracks. The first track to be shared from the EP is ‘Moon’, described by Sumie as “a song about the dreams you have when you sleep. Where you can be anyone, anything and anywhere with someone you love.” She went on to say  that… “Moon was the first song I composed from the EP and it is a conversation I wish I had done while I had the opportunity. It did set the tone for the other songs that followed it.” Watch the accompanying video for ‘Moon’, beautifully shot at Gothenburg’s Botanical Garden below…

Critical acclaim for Sumie…

“Direct, simple yet unpredictable vocal melodies are delivered in a pure voice… Leonard Cohen and Roy Orbison would recognise a kindred spirit on Lost In Light… Affecting and shot through with tension.” MOJO

Lost In Light is a beautiful album and is a quiet triumph of wistful restraint.” Monocle

“Beautifully disarming.” Loud & Quiet

“The songs on Sumie’s beautiful debut are contemplative, rueful and desolate… Small chamber works they may be, but these songs achieve a huge impact.” Sunday Times

“With a voice pitched between the icy clarity of Nico, the controlled sultriness of Julie London and the stark melancholy of sibylle Baier, Sumie blends Japanese and Scandanaivian folk.” Uncut

Mirou EP will be released digitally via Bella Union on 13th September 2019.
