MIHKA CHEE ‘I Was Better’ Single Out 28th April

NZ multi-instrumentalist Mihka Chee releases debut single, ‘I Was Better’ featuring burlesque and string section at Record Crate, Sydney Launch.

A tongue-in-cheek breakup song about forcing the past to stay where it belongs, ‘I Was Better’ is the debut single from NZ multi-instrumentalist Mihka Chee. An ode to getting off the couch, putting the ice cream down and switching off the rom-com, this track blends 60s girl group harmonies with bright surf pop riffs.

Hailing from the land of the long white cloud, Mihka now resides on Sydney’s northern beaches where she’s been nutting away at her upcoming EP, ‘Both’; a melange of pretty and personal indie pop with tiger-sharp teeth. ‘Both’ was recorded over five days at Housefox Studios with Ryan Miller (Black Rheno) producing and Oscar Dawson from Holy Holy (Ali Barter, Alex Lahey) mixing. ‘I Was Better’ is the first taste of the forthcoming 5-track EP.

In addition to a set at Housefox Fest, 22nd April amongst 16 other local and interstate acts, the ‘I Was Better’ single launch show will be held at The Record Crate, Glebe on 29th April, including a special 60s-themed opening performance from burlesque artist, Rosie Rivette, and live orchestral strings.

Mihka is a self-described music nerd from way back; she attended her first music lesson when she was a day old as her Mum bundled her along to one of her sister’s violin lessons, and happily spent much of her teenage years in smelly band rooms. Launching her solo project in late 2015, Chee has since acquired a strong local following, including at the fabled Newtown Social Club, and with a killer monthly residency in Manly.
Mihka Chee releases ‘I Was Better’ single independently via iTunes, e-stores and streaming platforms worldwide on Friday 28th April.
