Thrilling, Scrappy Tales Of Teenage Rebellion And Adult Longing Fill Australian Star Mia Dyson’s New Right There EP, Out February 12
October 21, 2015 - Four ARIA nominations (Australia’s equivalent of a GRAMMY). One of the top 25 guitarists in Australia. 4-star album reviews in Australian Rolling Stone. Mia Dyson is a star in her native Australia. With her new EP Right There, out February 12, 2016, she is bringing five songs filled with tales of teenage rebellion and adult longing to the U.S. The EP is a direct jab to the gut, and the songwriting is exemplary.
“Tearing Up The Lawn” opens the EP with snarling guitars and insistent snare snaps. A rollicking, rocking ode to misspent youth, the song feels like it's always teetering on the edge of going off the rails before exploding into each new chorus. A scrappy song about wanting things to be different but also working to be OK with the way things are, “Right There” conveys a world weariness that is encapsulated in the slight break in Dyson’s voice as she leans into the chorus. “I Want Honey” is a song about fantasizing all the ways you want to be different – richer, healthier, smarter, funnier – but also recognizing that where you are is the only place you truly live.
The new EP was recorded in East Nashville with Joe Pisapia (kd lang, Ben Folds Five, Guster) at his Middletree Studios. This is the first time Dyson has co-written with her husband, the poet Karl Linder, and the results are some of her most impassioned songs to date.
Multi-platinum superstar P!nk discovered Mia at a show in California earlier this year and became an instant fan, tweeting that Dyson was “blowing my mind apart.” Dyson is currently on tour in her native Australia with the Waifs, with plans for U.S. shows in early 2016.
