New York City’s missyou pulls inspiration from film and visual arts, and paint a broad aural picture on the instant, and at the same time ominous, sexy and dark New single “notthatdeep”.
“This song is built on the idea that things don’t always work out, but you have to keep pushing. It’s important to try and sometimes even if you don’t succeed, the beauty is in the journey, and the lessons you learn in failing are sometimes the ones that teach you the way to prevail. We have to be better for each other, for the planet, for the ones that come after us.”—Blaise Beyhan of missyou
Growing up in a commune in Alaska might not seem like a fertile breeding ground for music, but missyou front man Blaise Beyhan draws upon that and other experiences of living a nomadic lifestyle from an early age to craft the band’s dark yet sexy Alternative Pop songs.
Born with a restless spirit, Beyhan left Alaska at the age of 14, and moved around continuously, living in 10 cities in 7 states before finally settling in New York. He began writing music and creating visuals that drew upon his many experiences of living life untethered to any single place. Looking for musicians to write and record with – Blaise’s Time Out New ad grabbed the attention of guitarist Omer Wald, who was born in Los Angeles but raised in Israel. Wald moved to NYC to pursue his music career, and the two found a karmic connection that led to them playing gigs together around the city. Drummer Vin Quinones came to their shows and became a fan of what they were creating and eventually joined the band. He and Bassist Pete Valentini grew up together in New Jersey, and the current lineup was solidified.
missyou’s “notthatdeep” is the first taste off the band’s forthcoming sophomore EP which will be released in 2020.
“New York-based missyou is one of the more intriguing alternative/indie/pop bands in recent years….an infectious song that showcases their own personal music taste, pulling in a heavy influence from R&B to their pop-tinged alternative music. – Substream Magazine
“combines the moody, vulnerable elements of emo anthems with an electronic backdrop that leaves listeners debating whether they should cry or dance.” – Alternative Press
