***** Interview with San Mei *****

Q. When did San Mei start? Tell us about the history...
I started San Mei in about 2012, after being in a couple of different bands over the years. As San Mei, I've released a few singles here and there, but have been taking my time to really develop my sound. Next year I'll be releasing my debut EP.

Q: Who are your influences?
I have so many different influences! From Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Cocteau Twins, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Black Keys, to Cat Power, Warpaint, Lana Del Rey, Lykke Li... they're all quite different from each other but I've taken bits and pieces from all these artists that I love.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
These aren't in any particular order but they're albums that I love:

1. White Album by The Beatles
2. Forever Blue by Chris Isaak
3. Because of the Times by Kings of Leon
4. Lonerism by Tame Impala
5. Ultraviolence by Lana Del Rey

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I love it - it's exciting to feel the songs come alive with the band and connect with people face-to-face

Q. How do you describe San Mei sounds?
Dreamy, fuzzy, shoegazey

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I write and track all the melodies, parts/instruments at home - usually my songs are fully formed when I create the demos. I then refine the songs with the help of the producer that I go into the studio with - we work through the song together in pre-production so we know exactly what we're going to do when we get into the studio.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Georgia Mae, WAAX, Stevie

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I'd love to cover anything by The Kills

Q: What are your plans for the future? I'm planning on releasing my debut EP early next year, with a couple of small tours to support it

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks for having me!
