“I think for a long time I felt responsible for other people’s actions and emotions. Over time the roles of Victim & Villain became more apparent to me in several unhealthy relationships emphasizing the need for people to step up and take accountability for their actions. Making this song left me in a place where I wasn’t so confused anymore. I can’t control how someone reacts to things or treats me, but I have learned to protect my energy from someone who’s a villain.” – aimei 媚 summed up the inspiration behind “V&V”
“V&V” is an explosive alt-pop/electro track that gets us nicely acquainted with the unique sound of aimei 媚. The steady build-up to the chorus and booming beat are heavily inspired by her love for drum & bass, which is fiercely cut with a catchy pop melody. Furthermore, “V&V” is just the beginning for this talented new artist, with so much more to share over the coming months.
“You can’t play the victim and the villain.”
“As someone of British and Chinese descent, it has allowed me to enjoy a fascinating and cross-cultural upbringing having lived and studied in many countries. As I have been able to experience different music from different cultures, it has really allowed me to explore a variety of soundscapes ultimately developing my own sound in which I hope to coin; pop noir.” – aimei 媚 spoke on her makeup of her musical expression
Although new to the UK scene, aimei 媚 is no stranger to the musical arena, having found great success in the Chinese charts with her former EP. This time around she is reintroducing herself and entering an exciting new chapter as the experimental, genre-diverse artist we hear in this debut.
