Quirky and energetic Melbourne performer Mimi Velevska is set to launch her EP The Bona Fide Electric later this month. The EP was recorded at Sing Sing South Studios in Melbourne over one very interesting week which saw Velevska have her car towed twice. Her individuality and bright nature are evident on the EP, which blends rock, funk and jazz into a delicious musical smoothie.

Opening track, I’m Yours, quickly grabs your attention with sultry instrumentals backing Velevska’s powerful and rich voice. Delving further into the EP rewards you with tight and catchy basslines anbd drums that make you want to dance. The Bona Fide Electric is being launched at The Evelyn in Fitzroy on November 22 in what is set to be a unique live performance incorporating go go dancers, live body painting, art installations and, of course, Velevska’s on stage antics.
