Mid̩ РMainstream

British alternative/acoustic musician Midé releases his EP Mainstream, a short-but-sweet three-track offering headed by the single of the same name. Midé brings back the traditional songwriter feel with emotional heartfelt gems, hitting even on socially conscious themes, all in a little over ten minutes.

The set begins with “Mainstream,” the singer asks to be awakened from negativity and pain over lush guitar chords, and “Officer Please” begs for justice from cops who abuse their power. “Officer please don’t rush / I’m not the man that you want / I have a wife and son / Officer please don’t rush,” Midé sings. The EP ends with “Try,” an optimistic reminder to never give up.

If you’re looking for the stripped down style of songwriting that tells a story, look no further than Midé. Have a listen:
