"An LA duo with a knack for highly compelling tracks..."

When you step into the world of L.A. duo MYPET, you're immediately aware how macabre they would have you believe. Their official website lures you into their last single, 'Pays To Know', released last year with Luv Luv Luv Records – a hypersensitive and lurid landscape, with Amy Kuney breathing “I've got you where I want you” over gloomy synths, which are complemented by images of the sublime. Such is the refrain of their chorus, and it's the same foreboding presence that is continued with new single 'Bodysnatcher'.

All the hallmarks of big-budget production are visible when you watch 'Bodysnatcher'. The duo traverse a technicolour terrain, trapped by a dark and insistent beat that afflicts the track with a nightmarish rhythm. Their focus on the aesthetics of the sublime produces both moments of awe and moments of horror (all relating to your imagination, of course) and it's this duality that makes their music so intriguing. At the video's conclusion, the pair are consumed by a unidentifiable and alien object, continuing the imagery of entrapment that the venus fly traps in 'Pays to Know' provides.

Of course, hugely produced/styled videos don't always guarantee success, but with their artistic principles, their slightly provocative demeanour and their highly compelling tracks, MYPET appear to be a recipe for global acclaim. - DIY NEU

"New Music: MYPET- Pays to Know"

Reeking with dark sexual undertones, Pays to Know provides a nuanced sound inducing lustful thoughts to drink and smoke to; echoing that of The Kills, Sleigh Bells and the more lo-fi Massive Attack. Amy’s sultry yet wraithlike whisky soaked vocals channel contemporaries Alison Mosshart and even Portishead’s Beth Gibbons. Ray’s lo key yet melodic synths, and brooding bassline ebb and flo neither climaxing nor diminishing, following the throbbing heartbeat of drums and Amy’s seductive yet menacing vocals. The predator/prey seductive melancholia surrounding Pays to Know has caught the attention of not only industry eyebrows, but that of the masses, who are already thirsty for further tracks to materialize. - VULTURE HOUND

"New: MYPET – Pays To Know"

Having recently announced the release of their debut single through
uber-cool label Luv Luv Luv, LA duo MYPET have dropped a stream of the aforementioned track. Pays To Know is a funky jam, centered around the seductive vocals and sensual bass line, a sure fire indie blog hit. It may well be their first outing, but it’s already clear to see exactly what LLL have seen in MYPET.

"Premiere: MYPET – Pays To Know"

LA duo MYPET (Amy & Ray) have surfaced their debut single “Pays To
Know” and it’s quite the first entry! A sexy, sultry electronic jam
that clearly demands your attention. This could be massive in the
weeks to come, we’re just glad to be the ones to tip you off.

"Approved: MYPET"

Driven by a rhythm beaten out on (or at least sampled from) a hi-hat
that sounds like it’s coming close to the end of its life, with a
winding bassline and occasional interjections from beefy but
understated synths, Amy’s vocals are draped over the top. “I’ve got
you were I want you”, she insists. And as where I am is sitting here
playing the one song of hers that I can find to listen to, I guess she
probably has.

"MYPET: "Pays To Know" Video Premiere"

LA duo MYPET aka. Amy and Ray, have had an impressive response to debut first single "Pays To Know". A catchy as shit track, filled with
a generous helping of belly-vibrating synths and sultry vocals. It's a
pretty sexy affair all round.


"Pays To Know" - Single - Released by Luv Luv Luv/Universal
"Reflex" - Free EP



To paraphrase an old saying: In the company of newfound friends, there is never enough hot sake. This was absolutely true for siren-voiced Amy and enigmatic musicman Ray. Preceded by an introduction from mutual friend Kenna, it was an abundance of the warm seductive liquid that originally led to a raw and regressive jam session one balmy evening in Ray’s back yard home studio.

After some lively drumming, erratic bottle top tapping and the instant intuition that they were creating something special, the Los Angeles based collective were left with what would later become ‘Pays To Know’ -the lead single from the newly formed duo; MYPET. With both members invigorated at having met -in each other- an artistic and musical match, their mutual avant-garde prowess and passion for a sophisticated, symphonic sense became their exploratory vehicle to leave behind the confections of modern music… to revisit sound’s more animalistic fundamentals. Before they ever played a show, released a song, or finished writing for their first EP, MYPET signed a deal with the prestigious LuvLuvLuv records (Florence+The Machine & Blood Orange).

With Amy’s sleepy, woozy voice and Ray’s thudding synths, MYPET’s foundational sound stemming from symbolic chanting is coated with hi-tech defenses. The band performed their first show Mar. 26th 2013 at the Sayer’s Club in Hollywood, filling the venue to capacity and leaving a further mass of wistful fans lining the streets outside. Channeling the majesty of established acts like Portishead and Sleigh Bells, and vigor of credible emerging acts such as York’s Battle Lines (formerly Alvin Purple) and Londonbased lot Eyes On Film, this provocative team is making all the right moves.

In a world of restriction, MYPET are a channel for permission soaked musical alchemy; alluring philosophers whose sultry charm and mastery immediately encourage any audience to connect with the overwhelming feeling of the moment. With their intention rooted in intoxicating crowds with imagery beyond the normal plane, Amy and Ray, primordial and anti-decadent, are steering a shiny ship towards global success, encouraging the populace to revel in metamorphosis, communicate beyond the realms of language and ultimately, if they dare, to seek the light hidden amid the murky darkness.
