MI'ENS - Vancouver, BC
Mi'ens is a mathy noise rock duo from Vancouver, Canada. Mi'ens is the female-fronted shredding of Kim Glennie on guitar/loops/Moog, backed by the polyrhythmic blastbeats of Evan Heggen on drums. Experimental, with a side of sparklepop. Their unique brand of math noise consists of live loops, layered textural guitar and effects, the warm, analog drone of the Moog, coupled with well-placed vocalizations, all atop breakneck beats.
Mi'ens veers into the territory of art rock/post rock on their latest, Future Child, a follow up to 2017's Challenger and their 2012 debut experimentalsparklenoisepop. Mi'ens has toured the US, UK and Canada, and has opened for Tera Melos, Elephant Gym, LITE and Drug Apts.
