mui zyu Announces New Album, Unveils New Song ‘the mould’

    mui zyu – the project of London-based experimental pop artist Eva Liu – has announced her sophomore LP, nothing or something to die for. The follow-up to last year’s Rotten Bun for an Eggless Century is due on May 24 via Father/Daughter Records. It includes the previously shared single ‘everything to die for’, as well as a new track, ‘the mould’, which comes with a video directed by Liu’s Dama Scout bandmate Danny Grant. Check it out below and find the album cover and tracklist below.

    “‘the mould’ is a frosted glacial sweetie about the many meanings of mould. mould is very cool, and the right kind can give you super powers,” Liu explained in a statement. “unfortunately though, it’s less than ideal to be squeezed in to a mould that doesn’t fit snuggly. so i’m at the bottom of the rotten jelly bowl trying to work out what mould is the good kind, and what is the bad kind, and maybe realising none of it really matters at all, as long as i can get out of this steep, slippery bowl. this also marks a new approach for my writing indicative of the whole record in a kind of anti-overture-y way.”
