Phone Bill Episode June 27, 2021


4:02pm - 4:46pm

I M U R make genre-bending make-out music, weaving alt-R&B and avant-pop into undeniably catchy songs that fit just outside the box. Composed of singer/songwriter Jenny Lea, producer/guitarist Mikey J Blige, and producer/multi-instrumentalist Amine Bouzaher, I M U R’s sound is a cinematic blend of smooth and sultry, tussled together with texture and bounce. Their lyrics tell a story of self-reflection, strength in vulnerability, and the courage to tackle taboo subjects like addiction/recovery and female sexuality.

I M U R have been active for over 5 years, beginning in 2015 with their debut EP, Slow Dive, with Jenny Lea and Mikey J Blige (later adding Amine Bouzaher to the band in 2016). They found early organic success with single, Trippin’ On Feet. They followed up the EP with their next project Little Death, with standout tracks, FFL, Little Death, and Breathless (notably featured in Wynnona Earp Season 2 [Syfy] and Good Trouble Season 1 [Freeform]). One year later, they followed up with their third project, Thirty33, in 2018. Stand out tracks, Miss You Hate You, Should Be and Afterglow received high streaming numbers, and were featured in numerous TV shows, including Netflix’s Snowpiercer, Pretty Little Things, Wu Assassins & Workin’ Moms. I M U R spent 2019 largely touring within Canada and the US, playing a mix of festival and hard ticket shows, including Shambhala, Bass Coast, Capitol Hill Block Party, Winnipeg Jazz Fest, and shows in Seattle, Portland, San Fran, LA and San Diego. They released two singles, Fever and Lips and Lips, Tongue and Teeth. Remaining low-key in 2020, the band began development of their next album, My Molecules. COVID cancelled their touring plans, and the band used their time to craft their best work to date. Working out of their own studio in North Vancouver, the trio spent three days a week for the better part of 2020 working on their album, and Case of You is the first single off the upcoming album.
