Following the release of her fantistic new album on Fun In The Church, Mieke Miami will play a special outdoor set at Gretchen next week.
Mieke Miami is the new indie pop star from Berlin’s periphery. Born in Hamburg and moved to Brandenburg via Berlin, where she was already declared one of the most important newcomers of 2021 by Tipberlin. Musically, the formidable multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and singer – we forgot producer – moves somewhere between folk, pop, acid jazz, soul and funk. As if Roisin Murphy had formed a band together with Joni Mitchell and ESG.
‘Montecarlo Magic’, the follow- up to her debut album ‘In The Forest’ (2016, Solar Kollektiv) may no longer darken through the forest, but there is truly no compulsion to light either. It is more of a special, positive swing that radiates inwards and outwards, a state that seems to be an inner retreat and a journey at the same time: Florida, California and Brandenburg all nestle very close together there.
