【 Raise Them Up 】
With their second album “Ellipsis” released in 2018, I Me Mine continues its evolution with more contemporary sounds that are also more personal — and in our opinion, the perfect soundtrack of a coming of age film, multiplying colourful and playful shots.
From the first chord of the album, we find the signature I Me Mine mixing polyphonies with three voices and keyboard Wurlitzer with a high dose of energy.
You’ll find yourself transfigured by the progressive beauty of “Raise Them Up” which guides us to familiar pop melodies reminiscent of Massive Attack, enriched by a passage Afrobeats evoking the Foals. The track, which starts on a simple piano chord with melancholic touches, the slow tempo and bass encompass the listener in a sonorous cocoon influenced by John Lennon’s New York period through the prism of Tame Impala. It then forks on a few guitar chords before building to an anthemic chorus of harmonic vocals and plucky, driving percussion to a quiet end, with smashing effect.
True electro magicians, the trio takes us to a new dimension on ‘Raise Them Up’ that reminds us MGMT in this debauch of sound and this multiplication of parts all more whimsical than the other but still melodic.
Their music continues to reinvent itself with each composition but always maintains this will to mix the electronics to a tapered and bouncy pop that pulls us up.
