Mi Mye release an album, ‘The Sympathy Sigh’.
The 12″, the fifth long-player from Wakefield-based Scot Jamie Lockhart, follows up 2013’s ‘Sometimes Life’s Cool’, and appears as a joint release split between local label Philophobia and Leeds’ Hide & Seek Records (known for a roster including Post War Glamour Girls).
Lockhart grew up in Skerray, a fishing village on Scotland’s north coast of Scotland, but has spent the past ten years in the West Yorkshire town. Previously he has played fiddle for King Creosote as well as working as a producer and engineer for the likes of The Cribs, Pulled Apart By Horses, Forward Russia, New Model Army, and, er, Ellie Goulding.
The album is inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, as well as drawing from both his childhood on Scotland’s north coast of Scotland and his later life in Wakefield, as he transformed from solo act to part of a five-piece band.
Mi Mye play Blue Dot Festival and Kendal Calling in July before album launch shows in Wakefield and Leeds Brudenell Social Club in August.
No Sutherland show just yet…
