Biography

Mi'ens is a Vancouver-based mathy noise rock duo. Experimental, with a side of sparklepop. Female-fronted shredding, backed with polyrhythmic blastbeats. Founded in 2012, Mi'ens is Kim on guitar/looper, Evan on drums. Our latest release 'Challenger' is a 10" coloured vinyl, out on Kingfisher Bluez. 

"The Vancouver-based duo of drummer Evan and guitarist-looper-frontwoman Kim are experts in a quite specific yet hard-to-pin-down style of artsy, noisy math-rock, perhaps best summarized by the title of their 2014 debut, experimentalsparklenoisepop. Their prowess is even more clearly defined on Challenger, bursting with technical instrumental jams for those who gravitate to the warmer side of Battles, Don Caballero, and Trans Am. Evan propels the polyrhythmic momentum, while Kim’s shredding breaks the sound barrier, the two delivering a sonic assault and always pushing forward with a spring in their step."
