mui zyu, the moniker of Dama Scout’s Eva Liu, has released a new track called ‘Rotten’. It’s the latest offering from her upcoming debut full-length, Rotten Bun for an Eggless Century, which was led by the single ‘Ghost with a Peach Skin’. Check it out below.
“‘Rotten Bun’ brings us into the fantasy world where the record is set,” Liu explained in a statement. “Me, you, us, we, ‘the protagonist’ – takes in their surroundings of mouldy vegetation, witchcraft, magic and demons. The ‘rotten bun’ refers to the rotting heart of the lonesome warrior. We have to overcome these initial fiends who mock, bully, hurt by becoming strong enough whereby we are unaffected by their ‘rotten tongues’… A bit like a tutorial to a video-game where you are guided through the introduction and still have to destroy a final boss as part of your training. Lots of the metaphors in the record have been inspired by Chinese folklore in particular Pu Songlin’s ‘Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio’.”
Rotten Bun for an Eggless Century is set for release on February 24 via Father/Daughter Records.
