mui zyu’s music exudes an evocative and experimental essence, characterized by burbling percussion and unnerving textures. Rooted in Chinese folklore, her compositions feature delicate piano melodies enveloped in distorted sounds, forming a fragile framework that encapsulates mui zyu’s narrative. Through sticky synths and a lullaby-like melody, Mui skilfully crafts a comforting and introspective ambiance, ushering the listener into an alternate realm woven from her personal fantasies and boundless imagination.

‘On her debut solo album, Rotten Bun for an Eggless Century, mui zyu explores her heritage and grapples with otherness in knotty electro-pop shot through with field recordings and traditional Chinese instruments’, the renowned Pitchfork wrote, and it couldn’t be more true. mui’s sophomore isn’t far away, and we did get a little taste already with her latest single Everything To Die For, a spacey, laid back track that gravitates more towards a combination of indierock and slowcore. We are excited, and you should be too, because if one thing is for certain, it’s that zyu will surprise us once again.
