Music has always been a mirror for electronic pop adventurer BABii where among her songs’ skittering beats and fractured synths are reflections of her deepest self. Abandonment is at the heart of this haunting record because Warne grew up without a mother, raised in Yorkshire, Kent and Canada by a nomadic father who, after quitting a potential career playing ice hockey, hustled his way through life, turning his hand to antique dealing and building and renting out a warehouse space to creatives.
The context for this compelling new project is a long awaited interaction following the re-entry of Warne’s mother in her life that one day unleashed a tidal wave of emotions and sparked something in Warne, who decided to devote her next project to exorcising those demons - the dark reality and the idyll she had in her head as a kid. A universe built on real life heartache, MiiRROR will present a fantastical tale and exploration of “the duality of emotions: good and bad, light and dark” across ten songs and a story full of demons and junk yards.
An ardent and inspired teller of stories both dreamlike and real, BABii’s nomadic and creative upbringing by her father laid the foundations for her DIY and daring experimental approach to creation. Since her 2018 debut single ‘PHANTOM’, 2019 debut album HiiDE, GLOO collective collaborative album XYZ and most recent EP iii+, this accomplished multidisciplinary producer, songwriter, vocalist and visual artist has been consistently championed on the airwaves by the likes of Tom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne and Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, 1Xtra, and in the press by tastemakers including Loud and Quiet, The Quietus, Clash, The Line of Best Fit and more
