back to you
Mio is Adelaide’s answer to the best dream pop you’ve never heard of. The duo, comprising of beatmaker (and all-around godlike musician) Mario Spate, and the elusive Annie, make incredibly crisp and addictive electronica. Luckily for us, their new single ‘Back To You’ (featuring Erik Lindestad) is no exception.
The track features that really lush RUFUS styled snappy pop sounds, which you can identify straight from the get go. It’s these little aspects of the song that illuminate Spate’s excellence in music production. These lush vibes are layered under Annie’s hazy, soulful vocals that complement Lindestad’s voice so wonderfully.
It’s a simple release that isn’t going to break any boundaries – rather, it sets the duo up with an incredibly strong foundation of music where new listeners can head straight to and find solid tunes. I’d highly recommend you be one of those new listeners.
