Brothers David and Matthias grew up on a farm in South Africa listening to their dad’s old vinyls of Steely Dan and Joe Sample. David could sing back any Steely Dan guitar solo whilst Matthias jammed it out on the keys. From fooling around with sounds on tape recorders, they moved on to music production. Enter Naomi, a street-wise Capetonian with a classical background and an experimental attitude. Together they form meh., a dream-pop collective, fusing electro-pop production with interesting lyrics.
meh. released their debut EP Rundown Hotel in November 2017. The EP’s opening track Sniper Girl features New York based R&B vocalist BEX, and is best described as an electronic fusion of minimal pop and hip-hop. BEX’s vocals were recorded in her Brooklyn studio and all production took place in South Africa. The follow up tracks, Stone and Rundown Hotel, delve into the world of dream pop with retro synths and dreamy vocals. The EP ends with Friends and Cigarettes, a nostalgic throwback to our youth.
