Tip of The Week: Muchuu - On Beyond
Muchuu are brother and sister George and Millie from Herefordshire. The name Muchuu comes from a Japanease word meaning 'to be in an ecstatic delirious trance', which may be what the duo are trying to achieve through their cute blend of indie electro pop.
They were first discovered by BBC Introducing Hereford & Worcester, and were one of the early bands to go from the uploader to getting real Radio 1 airplay. Having been supported by Tom Robinson, Huw Stephens and Nick Grimshaw, the offers quickly came in to play at Bestival, Underage Festival, and HowTheLightGetsIn at Hay-on-Wye.
They also played live at the BBC Introducing Christmas Party alongside Florence and the Machine and have even had a bit of commercial success when their song Somebody Tell was used for an ad on the telly! Very rock n roll.
This track On Beyond is the latest addition to the Radio 1 playlist, and we hope it sends you all into ecstatic delirious trances up and down the land.
