[:en]Mizan K (first known as simply ‘Mizan’) is one name to watch the coming months. The Chicago-born singer was raised between Ethiopia and New York. If you want to read a great in-depth article about her and her upbringing, read this article on the always amazing Yours Truly website.

Mizan has been posting videos on her YouTube channel since early 2012, when she posted
this
beautiful piano cover of Gnarl Barkley’s “Crazy”.
In 2013 she followed it up with “No Feel [Freestyle]”, a self-written piano ballad, which will also be included on her upcoming EP ‘Dark Blue’, as well as the funky “Thru” and “Anxious” which both first surfaced in 2014.

It seems as though ‘Dark Blue’ (out November 6 on Terrible Records) has been planned for a while now and is finally about to be released. Last week the video for new song “7 Billion” was uploaded and a few days ago they released “Looking For”, which is our favourite so far. It’s super funky, and shows that Mizan can shine on both groovy uptempo tracks as well as beautiful piano-driven ballads.

Through a search, we found an unlisted video on YouTube which seems to be a videoclip for a yet to be released (or old?) (more uptempo) song. Not sure if that will be part of the EP. We won’t publish the name here, but the video features purple-toned shots of Mizan in a field of blooming flowers (a bit in the style of the video for “Thru”). We also found a nice short video in which she describes what the ‘Dark Blue’ EP is all about.
