Can you talk to us more about your latest single “24 (I’m Yours)”?
Sure, the song is about being unable to wait 24 hours before your love interest see’s you again! It’s a dance, pop track fused with urban beats. Its pretty funky so hopefully everyone will enjoy it.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Not particularly, it just made me think of the early stages of a relationship where all you want to do is spend time with each other and everything is exciting and new. If you are lucky and end up with the right person they should make you fell confident and good about yourself.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Absolutely, we have actually filmed one already, shot on a red dragon and set in a house party celebrating the release of the debut. The music video is sultry and sexy with moody slow motion scenes full of dancing, coming soon so keep a lookout!
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording and writing process is always really fun when you know you are onto a good thing. You can always tell when something is coming together nicely because everyone gets excited in the studio and there’s a real buzz. I know it’s been a productive and positive day when we play the song and everyone is on there feet.
Do you take a different approach when you are working with someone else rather than when you are working on your own material?
I always try to be open-minded when I am working with someone else, as I don’t want to close myself off to any creative opportunities. Change is a good thing and writing out of my comfort zone has been a massive learning curve. I also tend to write more fluidly when I have other artists to bounce off of than when I am writing on my own.
What was it like to work with Twissman and Starboi? How did those relationships develop?
They were great fun, really talented artists and always very supportive. We have worked together before in Karl Blacksmiths studio and collaborated on other tracks but none that felt as special as this one. We all felt really enthusiastic about 24 and it was awesome to have them be apart of the music video too.
How much did they get to influence the song?
They wrote their parts to the context of my chorus and verses, which just kept everything fluid and consistent. They added a real urban vibe to what could have turned out to be a pop dance track and I loved their input in the video too.
Does the single mean we can expect new material – how’s that coming along?
Certainly! I have been working on my EP and have several other great songs, which are to follow 24. I am really excited to share these with everyone and I hope to surprise you all with the versatility of my music.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Look out for my track Radar that is to follow along with Love you like I do…
Any plans to hit the road?
I would love too, let’s see what the future brings…
What else is happening next in Mimsi’s world?
Some performances in London Town and another music video is on the cards but in the meantime Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad are hitting the big screens and you can find me at the cinema because I am a massive movie geek!!!
