It’s impressive to see this Aussie songstress grow and surpasses any expectations anyone could possibly have. San Mei will release her new single Wars on May 12th via London based label Tidal Waves and the streaming experience just got elevated! Still producing her own songs so to keep this DIY feel, Wars exposed a crystalized synth pop vein that almost bounces on its own vibes! The danceable groove hits you like a strike while the atmosphere emits this eerie smoke of otherworldly colors!
