Canadian Indie Rock band Mise En Scene has announced their new EP Reality Bites to be released June 23rd, 2023. As a preview, they have released the title track along with the music video to “Reality Bites.” Both were inspired by the film of the same name.
The band shares:
’Reality Bites’ was a very fun and easy song to write, it came out in about 10 mins and was inspired by the 1994 Winona Ryder movie of the same name.
We knew we wanted to film a music video in this wonderful old laundry mat in Gimli, Manitoba where we grew up. It has a nostalgic look (and smell) and reminds me of being a kid with my mom in the hot summers washing our sheets and doing laundry there.
Mise en Scene is made up of vocalist/guitarist Stefanie Blondal-Johnson and drummer Jodi Dunlop, who worked on Reality Bites with producer John Paul Peters (Begonia, Comeback Kid) in their shared home city of Winnipeg.
The album sets out to encapsulate “emotional lessons learned – some sad, some funny, some angry, and others outright rebellious.” As with all their previous work, Mise en Scene continues to affirm that “music can get you through pretty much anything, and even help you thrive on the other side.”
