Originally of Dama Scout, mui zyu is the dreamy solo project of Eva Liu. Having already received high praise from the likes of Pitchfork, DIY and Loud & Quiet for her "knotty electro-pop," mui zyu is back on tour celebrating her newly announced second album.

 mui zyu, Hong Kong British artist Eva Liu searches for a portal, wandering between nothing and everything in her pursuit of peace. She constructs compositions by blending phantasmagorical strings with tape-mangled drum machines and traditional Chinese instruments to create an unnerving sonic foundation where sugary pop melodies can contrast on top creating an existential balm through music.

While her debut album, ’Rotten Bun for an Eggless Century’ delved into identity and cultural displacement, the new sophomore LP, ’nothing or something to die for’ (out May 24, 2024 via Father/Daughter) addresses the chaos of contemporary existence looking outward.

This album isn't one of despair, though; it's a poignant message of encouragement, urging listeners to find solace in connections – both with others and within themselves. With an eye to the absurd, it asks: how do we find the hole in the wall––the portal––to the path we all crave?

Now, instead of searching for answers from the inside, Liu raises her head to look at the world around her. As she attempts to understand the complexities and significance of human existence, she observes apathy alongside overwhelming chaos; the technological advancements of connection with the lack of meaningful bonds and the frustrations of upholding standards set by others. 'nothing or something to die for' tries to decipher these juxtaposing truths, holding both the weight of those trying to destroy the world with the utter futility of it all.

’Rotten Bun for an Eggless Century’ and ’nothing or something to die for’ together stand as reflections of everyone and everything that shapes our identities and where we fit into the earthly fabric of our lives.
