Mimi enjoyed a stellar 2023 with performances at Download Festival, 2000trees and Graspop to name a few, and will now deliver her first full record later this year.

September might seem like a little while to wait, but thankfully we have brand-new single ‘FSU’ (short for ‘Fuck Shit Up’) to at least keep us enthralled by Mimi’s work in the meantime.

Have a listen to the new track via its cinematic, hospital-set video below.

Speaking about her full debut project and enticing listeners into its world, Mimi has said:

“The Awakening or the pain-body? ‘THIS IS DOOM TRAP’. Welcome to a sonic journey through my pain-body and a guide on how to deal with it.

“The only way out is through. But everything is Rhythm and you’ll find yourself where you began eventually, on a slightly higher plane with new but similar challenges.”

Mimi Barks is set to tour the UK and Europe this March with Yonaka, starting in Brussels on March 01 and concluding in Brighton on March 27 via London’s Koko venue on March 19.
