M w S are a song writing duo from a small town in Italy, that have made London their home for creating their distinctive brand of Alternative R&B with lyrics about personal experiences that transports the listener in surreal and dreamy landscapes.
With a sound reminiscing of Sylvan Esso, Little Dragon and Maribou State, the duo first graced the airwaves in 2017 with their debut EP ‘Swim’. Written and produced between the UK and Italy, the project received critical acclaim from tastemakers such as Complex, Clash, BBC 6 Music.
In 2019, Giulia and Francesco took their art to the next level with a string of releases, supported by BBC 1Xtra and BBC Introducing, EARMILK, The 405, Atwood Magazine and a number of Spotify playlists like 'Alternative R&B' and 'Alt Pop’.
In June, their first London headline show at Servant Jazz Quarters was a huge success, selling out weeks in advance.
In the following months, their music has been featured in H&M, Starbucks, JOE & THE JUICE and playlisted by COLORS Berlin – the duo also presented their first Instagram partnership with Swedish brand Happy Socks as well as performed at UK Festivals like Wilderness in August.
M w S released their second EP ‘Grow’ in November 2019. The record was championed by Jamz Supernova in her EP Top 5 and amassed over 750k streams across digital stores. The duo finished off a successful 2019 with another London Sold Out show at The Waiting Room.
