Mear began as the recording project of singer-songwriter Frances Miller in 2016 with the release of the EP, Flood. Miller first met electronic composer and multi-instrumentalist Greg Harrison while the two were working together at Massey Hall in Toronto. Keen to develop the electronic side of Mear, Miller sent Harrison a song to work on. The result was so in line with her vision for the project that she asked if he would join the band.
The duo’s dreamy and upbeat new single, “Perfect Mess,” was Greg’s first contribution as a songwriter for Mear. The accompanying music video was shot on one of the Canadian National Exhibition’s busiest nights last year – a fact that feels surreal now.
