Mungbean is a glossy, electronic synth-pop group from Columbus, Ohio. Emma Swysgood and Sean Gleeson’s embryonic product balances a manicured synth-driven sound, while effortlessly integrating trap-like beats. The duo caters to a soft-lit, crowded bar in the city, or a fog-smothered dance club in NYC.
Nothing captures this sound brand the most than their new single “What You Find.” Their new video for the song is both haunting with a DIY approach that remembers a lot to those of My Bloody Valentine and the 90s much indier bands.
About the song, Mungbean comments “What You Find is a song about a dream. A lot of the time, when we’re working out demos, I (Emma Swysgood) will improvise melodies and lyrics in a sort of meandering, laissez-faire way. It doesn’t always stick, but it comes from the top of my head about whatever is on my mind at the moment. The song was written around this really dreamy, colorful synth part, so the words that came out on WYF were about a lucid dream I’d recently experienced. In the dream, I was continuously walking up a never-ending flight of stairs and when I got to the top, I dropped into a vast body of water right before I was jolted awake.”
