Mear is an indie pop collaboration between singer-songwriter Francis Miller and electronic composer Greg Harrison. They met whilst working in Toronto at Massey Hall and soon started sending tracks back and forth to each other online. In the same veins as Mandalay, Astrid and Portishead albeit with less guitar, Mear create melancholy music paired with some catchy synths and chunky drums. Their new single is “Second Sight” and it is about someone grappling with a memory that’s holding them back. The warm synths and relaxed vocal delivery pillow the poignant lyrics somewhat so it soft punches you.
Mear is gearing up for their debut album “Soft Chains” which is out on the 22nd of April. The music video for “Second Sight” is a wonderful one, combining dance and animation. Please be aware there is strobe lighting used. The single is out now and for more info on the album, follow Mear on Twitter.
