MIMAH is a rapper/pop artist serving female power as hip-hop meets electronic pop. With music that could make you feel badass whilst crying at the same time, her emotional sound combined with passionate and social reflective lyrics finds humour in our everyday struggles and reflects on what it means really to be human.
We got the chance to ask MIMAH some questions, here’s what she had to say.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
“I’m a solo artist under the name MIMAH as an Electro Pop Rapper. In my band is Joe Hall on drums from Margate and I’m originally from Bexhill. I’m branded as a solo artist, but we play like a band, It wouldn’t be MIMAH without him”.
How did you both meet?
“We met at uni in Brighton in 2017 when he was playing for my friend and I thought his name was Charlie for ages”.
Who were your musical influences growing up?
“Gorrilaz, Bonobo, Lady Gaga, Professor Green and Deluxe”.
What made you want to be in a band?
“I need a live instrument to get me pumped on stage. It’s harder to go for it when there’s nothing/ no one to bounce off of, for me”.
What has been your best gig?
“Playing Victorious Festival was cool as it was a big one, but I had this really mental headline for a theatre school advertising their new hiphop course and most of the audience were dancers/performers so they were an incredible crowd to play for as they really brought their energy”.
Can you tell us a bit about your music?
“My music is for soppy badasses. Check out the new EP ‘Panacea’ to see what I mean”.
Can you describe your music in 3 words?
“Emotional, Empowering, Cute”
What makes your band stand out from others?
“I’m a 5ft girl, playing with a 6ft+ drummer making music that no one would assume to come out of us”.
What are your plans for the rest of 2020?
“To keep creating and enjoying the response to ‘Panacea’. It’s been mad so far, so thank you everyone who’s supporting it”.
If you had to be remembered for one thing apart from your music what would you want it to be?
Do you have any gig’s coming up?
“Not yet – I’m hiding away for a while whilst I work on my next project, but hope to see you all soon”.
