Mima Good at The Basement
Mima Good. More like, Mima is SO Good! Touring from New York, Mima seemed to have made a wave of new fans on Wednesday, June 28th, at The Basement with her dark and stormy soul voice, mixed with electro pop beats.
For her first song, she sat on the floor at the front of the stage, singing to a track playing over the PA from her laptop with the confidence, and a little bit of the awkwardness, of Lana Del Rey. As her set went on, it became clear that she is not your regular performer. She both performed, and wrote with no inhibitions. We all have that voice in the back of our head that says "I want to do this, but maybe it's too bold." Mima just goes for it! If the music calls for laying on the floor, or dancing like no one is watching, she does it. If the lyrics call for sex, or murder, she sings them!
As Mima's set went on, she rocked a key-tar, got the audience snapping their fingers, and all-around demanded the attention of every person in the room. Her music can be dark, and may not be for everyone with songs about "reproductive labor under capitalism." For those who find her and love her though, that love will run deep.
Overall, the impression that Nashville Offbeat got was that Mima speaks up for all of us who want to say something, but hold back. And seeing her live was an awesome experience!
