When the Canadian band, I M U R, first reached out to me last year, I was intrigued by their blend of hip-hop and R&B mixed with a chillwave style. It was unique. It was fresh. Well, the Vancouver-based trio, is back with their first single, “Miss You Hate You”, off of their upcoming third EP, THIRTY33.
Essentially, the track is a preview of what we should expect on the new EP. It is smooth and fluid with intimate lyrics that are personal and heartbreaking. “Miss You Hate You” is a raw, touching track about lead singer Jenny Lea‘s battle with addiction and the loneliness that followed with her sobriety.
“This was a very important but difficult song for me to write,” Lea said. “I’m opening up about a very private part of my life in hopes to connect with others that might be struggling, and to let them know that they’re not alone.”
I M U R recorded the song in their temporary Montreal apartment that is filled with hushed vocals and stripped down production that will be ever-present on their third self-released EP, THIRTY33, expected to be released in the fall of 2018.
“We seek to blend strength with vulnerability and intimacy in our songs, and often thematically touch on introspection, sex, substances, and overcoming,” the band announced.
