‘Having already turned heads in the Bristolian music scene, and among queer pop circles, now Lewis’ sights are set much wider.

Born in a rural commuter village in the South East of England, MLY grew up with a mother in an all-girl rock band. Spending summers touring biker festivals across Europe in a decades-old campervan, they were raised on a diet of rock and metal. Drawn to the lighter intricacies of indie-pop, a genre banned in her parents’ household, they wound up in Bristol, running underground DIY post-punk shows and championing femme and non-binary artists such as locals Grandmas House & Grove. Having recently released their debut single, Lovers, MLY has traveled around the UK, showcasing intimate and vulnerable performances of new and unreleased original music.
