NYC-based Art-Pop duo mmeadows is made up of current Dirty Projectors member Kristin Slipp and Cole Kamen-Green, who has collaborated with Beyoncé, Lorde, Harry Styles, and more. They’ve shared new single “Baby-By,” a song inspired by lengthy insomnia experiences and meant to express the feeling of falling asleep towards dawn. This single follows “Light Moves Around You” and “You Should Know By Now.” mmeadows will also be heading out on tour with Finom (fka Ohmme) later this month.
A few years ago I was battling crippling insomnia, which brought me to some intensely dark places…On one of those nights not long ago, I decided to channel the electric current coursing through me into a song. The verses lull you into a state of melancholy near-sleep, then ramp up into an energetic burst of energy, the chorus, and this cycle repeats till the last gasp of the outro, like the sun coming over the horizon, when it’s finally safe to close your eyes.
mmeadows creates vocal-focused Pop, but they also use found sounds and esoteric vintage instruments in their productions and performances, as heard on their debut EP Who Do You Think You Are?, released in April of 2020.
